  •  Glorifying Undecided Voters...Again. (30+ / 0-)

    Bill Maher covered them well a few weeks ago.

    “If you’re one of the 5 percent of American voters who are still undecided on who to vote for, it’s okay to admit you just don’t really give a shit,” Maher began. “Seriously, if you still can’t figure out who you like more –Mitt Romney or Barrack Obama– stay home… because you probably couldn’t find your polling place anyway. I mean, what more information does someone need to make this choice? Obama has been President for nearly four years. And Mitt Romney has been running for President since 1971, when his space egg incubated and he burst out of an astronaut’s chest.”
    “Can we please stop treating them like they’re more noble and discerning than the rest of us? …[Undecided voters are] put on a pedestal by the media, as if they’re Hamlet in a think tank, searching out every last bit of information and high-minded arbiters pouring over policy positions and matching them against their own philosophies. Please! They mostly fall into a category political scientists call ‘low-information voters’ –otherwise known as ‘dipshits.’”

      Though I think in a few cases there are people who are just unsure of how the candidates stand on one issue.

      For example, I think the woman who spoke about the abortion issue really wanted to vote for Romney-- she's probably a republican -- but what Ryan said about abortion really scared her for herself, maybe for her daughters, and she had to vote Democratic for that reason.

      Also, I have a neighbor who is wavering between the two candidates. I think he really wants to vote Democratic, but is nervous about Obama's stance on Israel. I am hopeful that Obama will say something to reassure him on that issue.
