Smear Campaign Ratings

Presidential candidate security rankings
  (+5)
(+5)
  [vote for,
against]

US presidential smear campaigns have sadly become the norm during election years. Television broadcasts become rife with them, leaving little leftover airtime for those long lists of prescription medication side effects.

Rate the candidates according their total smear campaign tally, which candidates are the most secure in their own merit and capability and which rely most upon trashing the other candidates. News stations would keep score and display current rankings with a colorful secure-insecure graphic.

       Are candidates that rely on trashing their opponent better than those who rely on merit and capability?

       Not necessarily, but I would wonder about a candidate who seemed to depend heavily upon trashing the opposition.
