HARRISONBURG, Va -- A poll, from the Knights of Columbus-Marist, shows that 78-percent of Americans think that the 2012 Presidential Campaign is too negative, and we are still four months away from the election.
An Obama attack has aired on television quite a lot in recent weeks. The president tries to claim Mitt Romney is unfit for the presidency, but 64-percent of Americans said the ads are hurting our politics.
In Harrisonburg on Tuesday, it was hard to find anyone who liked watching the ads.
"I think they're a disgrace to the American people,” said Nancy Goobar. “I think it's a waste of money that could be better used for other things. And I think, as I said, it's just a waste of time. I turn them off."
Another Valley voter agreed.
"I think that we need to get to the nitty gritty here and stop,” said Louise Hall. “It's turning into a campaign of 'What can I say bad about the other guy?'"
Virginians especially can expect to see more of these ads as the state is considered to among the most important to the election.
