Hilarious! A single young voter on the group says she likes Obama and the rest of the panel says they are either leaning towards Romney or they are for Romney now, and the interviewer labels it a “draw”.

Maybe MSNBC should merge with comedy central.

Both the MSNBC focus group and FoxNews focus group went for Romney.

If they can’t make up their minds by know how likely is it they will even vote?

The Luntz group video was hilarious—while the one guy was blasting Obama a uh “heavy” woman sitting behind him was nodding her head “no no no”—obviously an undecided voter!—not!

Based on what I saw in that video, I wouldn’t say they were swayed by Romney like Frank Luntz’s group was, but it does sound like Obama didn’t get the decisive win that he needed to reinvigorate his campaign.

Romney already has momentum, he’s up big among Independents, and I’ve heard more times than I can count that undecided voters tend to break for the challenger in situations like this. That’s good.

But what is Obama’s October surprise? I simply refuse to believe that he’ll go down without pulling every dirty trick in the book.

Romney would have scored even better had Crowley introduced the issue of ObamaCare. I find it hard to believe that not one “undecided” voter in the room asked about this gargantuan program that will affect everyone in the country. The obvious conclusion is that Crowley did not want to raise the issue because it is deeply unpopular and would have benefited Romney.

I talked to someone I consider to be a very smart guy yesterday who insisted that “undecided” does not mean dumb or uninformed.

I think what he meant was “I’m a liberal, 0bama doesn’t deserve my vote, but I can’t decide whether to vote against him”.

The economy is Obama’s trouble. He owns it. Romney just keep hitting those stats!

Dawn, the married mother said Romney “ will take care of us”.........

I’ll bet that didn’t go down well in liberal land.

The black guy doesn’t get it. Black issues are irrelevant. Blacks are a minority and there are much more important issues of real concern. If his attitude is typical, he and the brothers will not make it to the polls.

"I think what he meant was “I’m a liberal, 0bama doesn’t deserve my vote, but I can’t decide whether to vote against him”.

Rather than vote against Obama they probably will not show up to vote or just leave that category blank.

Did anyone notice the slob of a woman, in blue, in Luntz’ group? She voted for Obama the first time and she’s sticking with him. No way was this woman ever an undecided. Why she was there was baffling, all she did was slouch and chew her gum.

Not when more important issues such as "unequal pay for women" and AK47 bans need to be discussed. When that Lib plant chick asked about the unequal pay, I chuckled and thought "Is she referring to unemployment pay?"

I think a lot of Regressives will stay at home, because if you were to put the Wonder Woman truth rope around them they’d agree that Romney will make a better President.

Driving around my neighborhood yesterday, I paid particular attention to political yard signs. I saw 2 for Zero.

I saw 8-10 for Romney. Overall all political signs are low this year.

What made me laugh once, was one yard had 3 political signs, of democrats, but no Obama.

are these the 10 “walmart moms” who went 5 for obama, 3 for Romney, and 2 for “undecided because I know obama is an idiot but I can’t bring myself to admit it”?

I saw that and wondered how Candy Crowley had got from the debate hall to the Luntz focus group so fast. But seriously, that women was loon, she said Romney wanted to ban women from the workplace, even the other focus group participants laughed at her. She obviously was a far left liberal plant that had lied her way into the "independent" focus group.

After last night’s debate I can’t believe there are any undecided’s left. The only thing left is stay homes.

A few years ago many homeowner associations tried to prohibit political signs. Since then I believe most of these restrictions have been shot down but I don’t think people decided to use them again, particularly since they aren’t readily available, (or bumper stickers for that matter.) Perhaps they are just going the way of print newspapers.

I’ve noticed the same thing in my neighborhood. Four years ago Obama signs were everywhere. This year I see plenty of Democrat signs still, but not one single Obama sign. I’m in a working class neighborhood in Colorado. This is probably union central. They seem to have almost no use for the pretender.

Bodes well for Colorado.

Like the fans of a last place team at the end of the season who go to the games disguised as empty seats, these people will just drive by the polls.

Why would someone that isn’t sure of who to vote for bother to vote?

“What made me laugh once, was one yard had 3 political signs, of democrats, but no Obama. “

That’s the case in Boulder County Colorado: forests of signs for down-ticket Democrat races, and not a single Obama sign among any of them.

On the other hand, many, many solitary Romney signs have sprung up, with more being added daily. I’ve seen two Obama signs and those went up this past week. Weird though, they have a solid blue-grey background and the Obama/Biden lettering in the middle is so small you can barely read it. Obviously, Democrats and Obama supporters are not at all proud of their support. It remains to be seen how many of them simply choose to sit out the Presidential vote.
