Which campaign slogan strikes the strongest chord?

Often that is what people remember and associate with the candidate. I couldn't remember McCain's or Romney's-- at first thought did they even have one, but I found them online. But which of these themes sounds most compelling? And why? How much of a role do slogans play? I think for President Obama and Trump... alot. And that it made a difference in their respective elections.

1. I think "Yes we can" was Obama's best slogan.

 

It cut through a lot of the lies put out by the Republicans and offered Democrats a simple and clear battle cry.

3. It wasn't his: he borrowed it

from the Hispanic immigration movement, which inherited it from Cesar Chavez and Delores Huerta's United Farm Worker slogan: "Si se puede."

4. "Country First" sounds like a radio format.
