FLEMINGTON, N.J., Aug 08, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Results of a national focus group conducted among 311 self-reported Democrats, Republicans and independents revealed that a majority of all parties believe that Paris Hilton's new political ad will help her reputation.
The study was conducted by HCD Research during August 6-7 to obtain Americans' perceptions of a new ad by Paris Hilton, in which she mocks a recent ad by John McCain that features her and Britney Spears.

Subject(s): Olympics; Tibet; ACCC Grocery Report; Paul Keating; Peter Costello; Liberal party; Paris Hilton
STEFANOVIC: All right, your not going to talk about Peter Costello, what about Paris Hilton…
PM: I did say nothing is ever handed to you on a platter, nothing is ever handed to you on a platter
STEFANOVIC: All right I'll take it because at least we might get some press out of that. Now Paris Hilton, she's running for President in the US as you know only too well...
PM: Is that my job for you Karl is it?
STEFANOVIC: Well I don't mind every now and then, you could just shake it down a little bit, mix it up a bit for people at home. Tell them what you really think deep inside Prime Minister. It think it will stand you in good stead.
PM: I said I didn't think Paul was an entirely happy chappy do there you go.
STEFANOVIC: Now I just want to get your thoughts on Paris Hilton, I seriously do because she is running for President of the United States. I wonder how this will affect the ANZUS alliance or trans-pacific relations in general?
PM: I reckon if Paris put up her hand. Think about this Paris Hilton suddenly with a big engagement on international relations. I think suddenly you would have a surge of enrolments in our universities as students suddenly regarded this as sort of the place to be.
Reminder: Review the Paris Hilton tapes and DVDs available in Parramatta. Bob ties piece of string on finger.
