NEW YORK, NY (WPIX) - I told you this was going to be the ugliest election in history. But I did not see it getting this bad this fast. Have you seen the TV ads?

The worst ad so far is this one put out by a Super PAC supporting president obama. It claims Mitt Romney helped kill a woman when Bain Capital. The company he ran, closed a plant in Missouri causing a steelworker to lose his job and his healthcare .

Both republicans and democrats have blasted the ad as one of the worst they have ever seen.

First, Mitt Romney was not running Bain when the plant closed. The worker's wife still had her job and her own healthcare.  She was diagnosed with cancer five years later

The ad is still running. So is an ad by Mitt Romney that tells a whopper about president Obama's welfare policy. Most newspapers and even republican Newt Gingrich has said the ad is a lie. But it is still running

Here's the reason.  A new CNN poll shows that only 3% of the voters are undecided.  So, it is very important for both candidates to get their supporters riled up so they show up at the polls.

It's only August and it is hard to believe but it is going to keep getting uglier and more negative. It would almost be entertaining if the future of the country wasn't hanging in the balance
