A new Pew Research survey finds most Americans say the presidential campaign already has been too long and dull and 53% say it has been too negative. At the same time, an overwhelming majority – 79% –  views the presidential campaign as important.

“Republicans and Democrats differ about whether the campaign is dull or interesting: 60% of Republicans describe the campaign as dull, compared with 46% of Democrats. There has been a sharp rise in the percentage of Republicans saying the campaign is dull since late March, before Mitt Romney effectively wrapped up the GOP nomination.”
