How do current events affect elections?

Is there a time when a piece of news is too late?

Current events affect elections because candidates will use current issues to build their platforms and attract their voters. News won't be considered too late during an election; but news always does affect politics.

If an election is during a time of relative peace, more emphasis will be placed on social issues such as education and health care. These are more left-leaning issues. During times of global crises or war, people often vote for more right leaning parties and care more about homeland security issues.
