We can sympathize with this little girl who has grown so tired of the constant presidential campaigning and coverage, it drove her to tears.

A 4-year-old girl, Abigael Evans from Fort Collins burst into tears after she heard a story about Barack Obama and Mitt Romney on NPR. Her mother had been listening to the news station when Abigael just couldn’t take it anymore and started sobbing.

“I’m tired of Bronco Bamma and Mitt Romney,” she cried in the video, via Huffington Post.

This viral video has gotten a lot of buzz this week after her mother posted it on Oct. 30, and has accumulated over 1.5 million views in just three days.

NPR’s Mark Memmott has even gotten wind of it and issued a formal apology in a letter to the little girl saying:

“On behalf of NPR and all other news outlets, we apologize to Abigael and all the many others who probably feel like her. We must confess, the campaign’s gone on long enough for us, too. Let’s just keep telling ourselves: “Only a few more days, only a few more days, only a few more days.”

Don’t worry, little Abigael, it will all be over soon enough.
