That's a whole other debate in itself though. I would argue that someone being influenced without knowing the real reason why would be classed as subliminal.
Everyone wants to change the world, noone wants to change himself.

The thought behind this is that people are going to vote anyway and many are not going to know the positions of the candidates. To win you need to position your candidates name as something positive in the mind of the voter and when it comes to vote they have a positive opinion of the candidate and their name in their head. Its something as simple as that that swings elections.
For a key part of the electorate (ie those that will vote but are not followers of the policies and the campaign) this is an important part of determining how they vote regardless of party.

'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

I reckon it will have nil effect to be honest, in terms of the number of ciggies sold. The mix of what brands sell will likely change I imagine, and a 'homebrand' style might start doing better. But they're basically not allowed to advertise anywhere, so its just meant to be removing a visual cue of addiction.
That said, so much of the cost of ciggies is taxes and excises, there's little room for a cut-piece 'homebrand' line to make any impact.

Completely off topic, but have been enjoying your posts about marketing recently, Gelman. Have been really considering taking it on as a major for my commerce degree (doing an Asian studies degree as well), currently a toss up between that or international business since they're the only two that interest me. Marketing winning out atm since it doesn't seem to be as much of a vague piece of **** major as international business.
Wish I'd done more marketing in my commerce degree. I did management because it was easy, and at the time I found marketing to be depressingly exploitative. But having now lived in the real world, I reckon it would have been a more useful set of studies.
