As difficult for it is to believe, there are still those who call themselves “undecided.”
I am curious to find out how one can be undecided at this late stage of the game. Also, the two candidates could not be further apart in the political spectrum. John Kerry is the most liberal democrat to run for President since George McGovern in 1972. President Bush on the other hand is the most conservative republican to hold the office since Ronald Reagen!
Why is it with such stark contrasts that there are still people undecided? Here’s my theory: If you are undecided at this point with two such sharply differing candidates, you are probably not going to vote.
Those who think that a large amount of voters who call themselves “undecided” will suddenly and spectacularly make up their mind on election eve, and rush off to vote for their candidate are going to be disapointed.
I tend to devalue those who call themselves “undecided” after three debates lasting a total of four and one half hours. In fact, I think that there should be only two debates next time around. Was it me, or did we hear pretty much the same issues popping up during these debates, with pretty much the same stock answers: :Kerry: “Bush gives tax cuts to the rich. He rushed us into war” Bush: “Kerry is a flip-flopping big spending liberal.” Okay…even someone who enjoys politics as much as I do grew a little sick of the redundancy. And there are still those who can’t make up their mind? PULEASE!
I would much rather call this group “the clueless.” And the clueless, I think will be staying home, for the most part,on election day.
Any other thoughts on this?
