As much as I hate to agree with Dope;

Table 5:  Tone of Presidential Race by Sponsor, 2012 (October 1-21)

Positive % Contrast % Negative %
Obama 2012 6.3 20.3 73.3
Romney 2012 11.9 52.1 36.0
Dem Groups 0 11.3 88.7
Rep Groups 1.2 3.6 95.2

contrast ads—those that mention both candidates

And many more interesting comparisons like;
Table 7: Top Issues Mentions by Party in Presidential Ads (Oct 1-21)
Table 8: Emotional Appeals in Presidential Advertising (Oct 1-21)
