Who are these Ďundecidedí voters?

I donít know any. None. Not one.

Itís not that I donít believe that they exist; Iím sure they do. But they are obviously waiting to hear something that hasnít been stated yet; but what?

More so than in any other election in my lifetime, the choice could not be more clear. Given recent events (the Citizens United ruling, the near-collapse of the economy, high unemployment, the threat by the GOP to reverse Roe v. Wade, etc.) how can one not have an opinion on which direction we should be heading as a nation?

Iím not trying to be a smart ass; I really want to know. What are they waiting for?

I have a couple of theories:

A) They are apathetic and probably wonít vote, no matter what.

B) They donít like either party, which I can understand. But still, at this point, how can you not have an opinion? There have been many elections in which I didnít like either choice, but I always voted, even if I selected a 3rd party candidate with no chance of winning, or wrote in my dogs name. It was just my little way of protesting. But never, at this point, would I have considered myself Ďundecidedí.

C) They are perhaps in a coma, or maybe just a little bit slow?

Am I missing something? What other possibilities exist? Iíd really like to know.

2. I think most of these will vote for whoever they think will win.

thats why they are waiting so long to decide so they make sure they vote for the winner.

7. Really? People really do this?

What's the point? It's not like anyone would know if you decided not to vote at all, unless you yourself told them. WTF?

9. Its simply a desire to be on the winning side or being right about picking the winner.

They wont admit it but many do it.

3. If you don't know who these guys are by now and haven't been affected by national events then

maybe you shouldn't vote at all. You are not knowledgeable enough to make an intelligent decision this late in the game.

4. I've said it before and I'll say it again if you are undecided at this stage you are either stupid

or an attention seeker.

5. If they are undecided by now they shouldn't be allowed to vote

They are too stupid to vote.

Its night and day.

8. People not into politics

So wonder if they will bother to vote, maybe when called on phone they give answer of I don't know.

Question to ask on all polls is will you definitely be voting on Nov 6th or earlier? Then see how many of those are undecided.

11. If they are undecided...they haven't beeen paying attention.

Probably too busy working, have kids and watch cartoons all day, or playing games. Obviously they don't listen to the news. But don't they talk to friends or get out of the house? I just can't imagine anyone is really undecided. Well... maybe someone who's been living under a rock, or bridge or in a box.
