Say What?! Low blows going too far?

The competition has been a pretty nasty one up until now, and we're going out to ask you if you think the insults are beneficial or hurting the campaign.

Blow, after blow, the presidential candidates have gone from calling each other nicknames, to bashing each other's wives. The competition has been a pretty nasty one up until now, and we're going out to ask you if you think the insults are beneficial or hurting the campaign.

"I think it's very immature. If you look at the seat of the presidency, and talking to other world leaders, that's not something you want to see in who to vote for to lead your nation," said Ben Handon.

"I don't find it amusing at all. I think it shows an incredible amount of unprofessional-ism and I think they really lost sight of what's really important in our country," said Leslie Clark.

"I don't know how hard it would be to be in the spotlight all the time. As exhausted as they have to be from all the traveling from their campaigning, I just know I'm not at my best when I'm exhausted. I don't excuse it, I just don't know what it's like to be in their shoes," said Vanessa Chavez.

We saw a few mixed emotions there, but now we want to know if you think this type of approach to the campaign is having a positive or negative effect on voters.

"It is putting a negative spin on it because it's going to now be in people's heads for the next election and elections to come," said Handon.

"I'd like to say it's making a negative effect, I know it has for me it makes me not want to vote for any of them," said Clark.

"Our culture is just different and so I think that this election is definitely revealing that. Kind of revealing a lot of things that have been underneath for so long, we're just kind of seeing it," said Chavez.

Now when it comes to actually voting, will the low blows affect your vote?

"I don't want to vote for someone who throws blows shots at people that have nothing to do with foreign policy or what the nation really needs," said Handon.

"It's definitely made me have to think harder for who I'm voting for. I don't think any of them are conducting themselves a way a country's leader should conduct themselves," said Clark.

"I do my research, and I listen to more than just the latest tweet. I really look it up, what's the voting record. What's going, the full part of it, not just when they're on the camera," said Chavez.
