    I’ve been told that when “Saturday Night Live” lampoons you, you’ve finally made it. Or, maybe that’s just what helps me sleep at night, as the recent victim/beneficiary of an “SNL” parody. The other possibility is that you’re so ripe for mockery, and your mere existence is so absurd, “SNL” can ignore you no longer. Undecided voters, I’m talking to you. The “SNL” parody of so-called undecideds has characters saying things like: “Before you get our vote, you’re going to have to answer some questions. Questions like, When is the election? When do we have to decide? What are the...

    How good was Gallup’s vetting of the questioners at the 2d Presidential debate held at Hofstra on Long Island? One explicitly feminist question was asked by undecided voter Catherine Fenton: And it’s Katherine Fenton, who has a question for you. QUESTION: In what new ways to [do] you intend to rectify the inequalities in the workplace, specifically regarding females making only 72 percent of what their male counterparts earn? By a strange coincidence, there happens to be a Catherine Fenton who in 2008 identified herself as the Media Coordinator of CodePink Long Island.

There could NOT be any more stark difference in choices this election. Many have voice their choice in the polls…47% to 47% (+/- 2). So that leads me to a very interesting question. Who are these 4-6 percent called “The Undecided”? Better yet, what make up of mindset does one have to actually have to NOT be able to form a choice?

    I guess you'd have to be brain dead not to give the win to Mitt, but how about this surprise. CBS: More good news for the GOP nominee: 56 percent of those polled said they viewed Romney in a better light after watching the debate. Eleven percent said their opinion of him dropped, and 32 percent cited no change in opinion. Perhaps most promising for Romney, whose upper-class income has helped stifle his ability to relate to the "average American," the percentage of those polled who said they felt the former Massachusetts governor cares about their needs and problems spiked...

    I don't get it. How could any sentient American, after nearly four years of the reign of Obama, be "undecided" just 5 weeks before the election? How is that even possible? I don't buy it. I think they have already decided and just want the attention. Maybe not. It smacks more of the MsM's drive to depress GOP voters and convince republicans to stay home on election day than it does of the truth. But then -- what is truth? In a country as plugged-in and wired as America, it just seems impossible for anyone to have as much information...

    National Review ^ | 09/20/2012 | Jim Geraghty
    For much of the year, head-to-head polls of President Obama and Mitt Romney have generated eerily consistent results: Obama garners a percentage in the high 40s but not at 50 percent, with Romney either tied or slightly behind. A small total — about 5 to 8 percent — remain undecided. Those voters could determine who wins the popular vote — and while the Electoral College vote and the popular vote can differ, it’s pretty rare. So how will those remaining voters end up splitting? Their refusal to back the incumbent suggests a disappointment with Obama’s record that is not easily...

He voted for George W. Bush in 2004 and for Barack Obama in 2008. With three months remaining in the campaign between President Obama and Mitt Romney, Mr. Napier said, “I may not just vote for either one of them.” About one-third of Americans describe themselves as independent voters, creating a widespread impression that a large group of Americans will provide the decisive swing votes in this...

That sounded like hyperbole until Scott Rasmussen released this video today, discussing the internals of his head-to-head matchups in weekly tracking polls. Mitt Romney now ties Obama 45/45 in the latest three-day cycle, but the uncommitted voters — 420 respondents, 12% of their sample — have a distinctly sour take on the President: CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO Note that this doesn’t equate entirely to “independents,” although I’d guess...

    President Barack Obama's winning passage of national health care is both exhilarating and sobering. Covering so many uninsured Americans is a historic achievement. But the president had to postpone trips, buy off companies and cut every conceivable side deal to just barely make it happen, without a single Republican vote. If the Democrats now lose seats in the midterm elections, we're headed for even worse gridlock, even though we still have so much more nation-building for America to do — from education to energy to environment to innovation to tax policy. That is why I want my own Tea Party....

The call was based on the fact that the percentage of undecideds are historically high and indications are they will break heavily for McCain. We found a little more information to support this theory.

But far worse is the reported 13% undecided in the very blue Northeast. If this number is right that’s Halloween scary and could spell defeat for Obama. If he can’t shake his “Undecided problem” in the deeply blue Northeast where Obama should have things wrapped up, he is in trouble. The Northeast is supposed to be Obamaland. IBD/TIPPs shows John McCain up 53/40 with just 7% undecided in the red Republican South...

    I have encountered a scarily large amount of middle-class, self-described moderate to conservatives who are seriously leaning to Obama. These are informed people who pay some attention to the news but who are not steeped in politics. Dane Stangler is a perfect example. His RCP article captures the conundrum quite well. Our job as conservatives is to talk them out of it with well-informed reasons. My conclusion on these people is twofold: 1) They suffer from Bush fatigue and want, *sigh* "Change." Face it. President Bush has worn out his welcome even among many of us who think is a...

    While most of us focus on national polls or battleground state polls, Karl Rove always raises one additional poll question. Is Barack Obama qualified to be president? On that question, Obama consistently does poorly, and he is not improving. This week also brought a reminder that Sen. Obama hasn't closed the sale. The Washington Post/ABC poll found 45% of voters still don't think he's qualified to be president, about the same number who doubted his qualifications in March. This is seven points more than George W. Bush's highest reading in 2000 and the worst since Michael Dukakis's 56% unqualified rating...

The case has generated widespread interest and fierce debate over the death penalty in the United States because Williams, 51, has written a series of books warning young people against...

I wrote the draft of this to solidify my own thinking on this election, cleaned it up a day later to make sure I still felt as I do. I don't think this will be a popular piece here at FR but I do feel that the theme's expressed can be useful to you in swaying weak Kerry supporters and undecideds to Bush. I appologize in advance for any offense I may cause. Permission...

    A handful of UA Young Democrats met at Old Main last night to peacefully protest Ann Coulter's speech by canvassing campus residence halls to get students to vote in early polling next week. Democratic Rep. Raul Grijalva, and District 8 Democratic Rep. candidate Eva Bacal, spoke last night about the work the UAYD have been doing for the election. The group was protesting peacefully as a response to the UA College Republicans' rude and interruptive protests at the Michael Moore, Theresa Heinz-Kerry, and John Edwards's speeches, said Alicia Cybulski, UAYD president. The UAYDs went door-to-door in campus residence halls to...
  • CNN Town Meeting a Pro-Kerry Rally

    I was one of 170 people in audience at the Paula Zahn Now Town Meeting last night in Clark County, Ohio. It was awful to even be a part of it in the audience. We were mislead that both sides would be equally represented. Instead it turned into a Pro-Kerry rally with Gen. Clark telling us the "truth" about the issues during the commercials. Some of us stopped clapping about half way throught it, and we were considering walking out. I wish we had.

    The polls keep telling us there are still undecided voters out there. It's hard to believe, but I imagine they're the people who don't really pay attention to all the political stuff until they have to -- the way I used to be, in fact. The downside is that with less than a month to go, it's hard for them to get all the information they need, with all the Democrats spinning and spouting talking points like mad, aided by the "mainstream" media. Several times I've been asked why an undecided voter would choose to vote for President Bush. This...

    Eight Talking Points for Voter Persuasion Do you know any undecided voters? Do you have a not-so-bright cousin or uncle or friend who intends to vote for George W. Bush? Were you raised by parents who always voted Republican because their own parents always did? Do you live in a state where Confederate flags are seen more frequently than peace signs? If you answered yes to any of the above, the following last-minute talking points might come in handy. Use them sparingly, smile and be patient. There is no higher calling for a voter than to influence other voters. Don't...

    INDEPENDENCE, Ohio - For months, Mary Pagel has been unsure how she'll vote. Pagel and her husband "waffle back and forth. One day we're voting for Bush and the next day we're voting for Kerry," she said. The retired teacher is unhappy with President Bush's strategy in Iraq, but she's wary about Sen. John Kerry. "I think Kerry is going to spend too much of my money - too many social programs," said Pagel, who definitely plans to vote on Nov. 2. Pagel is part of a small but crucial slice of the American electorate that campaign strategists call "the...

    Brynn Bohlman got what she expected out of the first presidential debate. “Zip.” In an hour and a half debate on foreign policy and homeland security, neither Sen. John Kerry nor President Bush said anything that Bohlman hadn’t heard before. And the candidates, particularly Kerry, didn’t give enough details to satisfy Bohlman. “I’m glad he had a plan,” she said of Kerry’s four-point plan for the war in Iraq. “But he didn’t say what it was.” As part of a project by WDAY and The Forum, Bohlman and three other Fargo-Moorhead undecided voters have agreed to watch three presidential debates...

    ....So far, about 9.75 million Floridians are registered to cast ballots in the 2004 election -- about 1 million more than were eligible to vote in the contested 2000 election. Driven by the major political parties and special-interest groups, the surge of new voters is part of an effort by supporters of both candidates to get every ballot possible in a state where just a handful could be all the difference in the world. Among the people who have registered since the 2000 election is an unpredictable new variable: There are now 1.73 million voters who are not registered with...
  • *** Change Public Opinion!

    *** Change Public Opinion! Small actions now can make all the difference later... Elections and causes are often won by swaying the opinions of just a few previously undecided people. Together we can do this, but we need to start now... One quick and easy way is via the PublicOpinion.com website. If each of us leaves an opinion there that is POSITIVE (let's leave the negative campaigning to the other guys!) regarding our candidates, party, and causes, and encourages others of like mind to do the same, we could quickly generate a huge amount of positive opinions before the other...

    The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Tri-sexual, Undecided, Asexual and Multi-sexual Community has been clamoring lately for their "right" to marriage. Envisioning themselves as wounded civil rights activists, fighting the bitter fight against bigots, church-bombers, and fire hoses to a new springtime of equality in the eyes of the law, they have launched an all-out attack on any person or group who infringes their imagined Constitutional right to marriage. The attempt made by many in the gay and lesbian community to form a link between today's queer activism and the battle for civil rights of the Sixties has angered many,...
