Bill Maher closed out his show tonight with an appeal for the media to stop playing up the impact of undecided voters on the election, asking how anyone in their right mind could be following the election and not have a preference between President Obama and Mitt Romney. Maher bashed the undecideds as “dipshits” and “nincompoops,” advising them to “stay home, because you probably couldn’t find your polling place anyway.” -snip-
are republicans who are embarrassed to admit openly that they support such ugly candidates?
it is my impression that those who say they are undecided are those who don't want to share their secret ballot choices.
there are many reasons for a person to adopt this attitude about their voting preferences. some of these are perfectly legitimate.
others a bit more suspect.
if you don't publicly proclaim your choice you don't have to explain it. like if you are voting against the black man even if he is the better candidate.
if it seems that undecideds end up voting republican it may be because they have more reason to avoid revealing what side they're on?
