Political expenditures

For the past … year it seems, whenever you turn on the news there are political pundits yammering on about polls and what some candidate said at some place and blah.  How much time, money, and effort goes into making all the ads, conducting all the polls, and then dissecting every little bit of data to blather on for hours on end on cable news?  I’m not saying we shouldn’t put any effort into politics, just not as excessive an amount as we currently do. 

I’m curious how many man-hours will be put in by candidates, their staffs, their PACs, polling companies, and news outlets for the 2016 Election.  And how does that compare to the Apollo program?  Or building a pyramid?
