Undecided voters

I really can't even fathom the concept of undecided voters this late in the Presidential race. Regardless of what political affiliation or denomination you are it is very clear this year that Obama and McCain pretty much differ on everything. Economic policy, foreign policy, how to handle the war, political ideology you name it the two candidates could not be more different. If you can't make up your mind after a whole year of seeing these guys on every news channel every day then you are unqualified to be voting. Just don't vote. Those that are still undecided must struggle to make decisions on many many things. Paper or plastic. Just pick one.

If you like corporations protected, limited government intervention, a health care tax credit, and staying in Iraq vote for McCain. If you like middle class tax cuts, more government intervention in economic policies, universal health care, and pulling out of Iraq vote for Obama. Its pretty easy to see the huge differences between these two candidates. Even the Odd couple would look at these two and think "dang we could have done a better job at being different." The differences are even further exacerbated when you look at each candidates running mates. If you like someone who is folksy, charming, and a Washington outsider vote for Palin. If you want someone who is experienced, polished, and knowledgeable vote for Biden. This is not apples and oranges this is apples and orangatang's. Step up to the plate undecideds and make your pick.

I've been befuddled by this very thing. How could anyone STILL not know which one best represents what they value? It's baffling for sure!

Anybody who is not decided at this stage is a liar. Seriously. You would have to be swayed one way or the other by now. I think these people simply need and crave attention. Deep down inside I am sure they know exactly who they are voting for by now. How on earth could you not?

The issues confronting we undecideds are more complicated than just the ones you list (although everything you say is important). I'm traveling this election having decided to purposely be an undecided voter in '08, largely so that this election will be a lesson in civics to my kids, rather than one of partisanship. You can read about my adventures/misadventures in this endeavor at a blog I created for this purpose at www.undecidedman.com. I'll be interested to hear how this conversation continues.

i'm not one of the undecideds. it is very clear in my mind who i'm going to vote for. i do plan on putting up a post about vote (that would be the extent of anything political on my blog), and it doesn't matter who you choose as long as you are choosing the person you think will do the best job. i just hope some voters are researching and not basing their vote on what they see & hear.

Very succinctly put...."paper or plastic, pick one" Now that the VP's are in the picture, the tickets are complete, there really is no excuse for people not to know who they are voting for.

Biden said it well when he said this is the most important election since the 1930's. We have so much happening in this country right now that hoping for the best is not enough, people need to step up and take ownership...

Great post Tim!

Absolutely true! How could you not know by now. They are very different and for me the choice is a clear one. People still surprise me though.

'Even the Odd couple would look at these two and think "dang we could have done a better job at being different."'

I would have disagree with you on this topic. It is like choosing between the lesser of the two evils when it comes time for the election.

This can be hard for some, especially if the can't fathom "throwing their vote away" on a third party candidate.

The fact that so many people are decided so quickly is actually disheartening and makes you wonder why they decided - they're following the crowd, they fallow in the path of their parents, etc...

I don’t believe there are any undecided voters. There all just lying. They like the media attention. And of course there is the idea that they are the deciding factor in this campaign. We’re talking 15 minutes of fame here.
