  • No Dave, Undecided Voters Aren't "Idiots" ---- You Are

    During the last week talk show host David Letterman has been calling undecided voters "idiots" because they are still undecided. If he actually knew anything about the candidates he would understand that the undecided voters may be the smart ones. For those who don't watch Dave, it has been evident for a long time that he's an Obamista. He believes whatever Obama says and ignores criticism of Obama. He frequently criticized Mitt Romney for not releasing his tax returns while saying Obama could keep all his records secret. Many undecided voters may be waiting to see if secret documents are...
  • A Vote for Election Day

    10/24/2012 5:23:23 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | October 24, 2012 | Jonah Goldberg
    I suspect most voters watching Monday night's debate found it pretty boring. President Obama wanted to force Mitt Romney into saying something stupid. Romney didn't take the bait. So pretty much nothing changed the dynamics of the race. But what if something did? What if Obama announced in a fit of pique that "America doesn't deserve a president as awesome as me"? Or what if Romney pulled open a panel in his chest revealing that he is, in fact, an android? And he was made in China! Or the game-changer could have been something more plausible. The point is, what...

    While speaking in Delaware, Ohio, Michelle Obama told supporters they should reach out to the "knuckleheads" in their lives and tell them to vote for Barack Obama ... In August, we reported that the First Lady used the same language when talking about undecided voters...
  • Is this the ad that will win the election for Romney?

    Take a look at the internals of any poll on the presidential race, and it will show the same thing: Men prefer Republican candidate Mitt Romney by a significant margin, while women prefer President Obama by a similar margin. This presents both a challenge and an opportunity for the Romney campaign, as they seek to woo more women to support their candidate as Election Day draws nearer. According to Resurgent Republic, a conservative organization that conducts polling and focus groups, Team Romney may have created an ad that does exactly that.

  • PARADE Exclusive: A Conversation With the Romneys

    08/25/2012 3:05:57 PM PDT · by jocon307 · 8 replies
    It's probably the closest the Romneys have come to kicking back during this campaign summer: a late July afternoon on glistening Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. Grandkids bounce on the trampoline, splash in the gentle waves, soak in the hot tub. The candidate's eldest son, Tagg, 42, and his wife, Jen, keep an eye on their brood while a passel of campaign workers and friends stir things up in the kitchen. But you're never off the clock when you're running for president, which is why Mitt Romney‚ wearing pressed jeans and a more relaxed demeanor than he does on the...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | April 18, 2012 | Dick Morris
    With most current presidential polls of likely voters showing 9 percent to 10 percent undecided, the question of where the undecided votes go becomes of paramount importance. To answer this question, I compared the final Gallup polls with the actual results in every race in which an incumbent president was opposing an insurgent since 1964. This included the Johnson-Goldwater race of 1964, the Nixon-McGovern race of 1972, the Carter-Ford race of 1976, the Reagan-Carter-Anderson race of 1980, the Reagan-Mondale race of 1984, the Clinton-Bush-Perot race of 1992, the Clinton-Dole race of 1996 and the Bush-Kerry race of 2004. In these...

    You’ve seen them in interactive focus groups, and most recently in the Town hall debate: The Undecideds. It makes a normal voter wonder, “Where in the heck to they find these people?” The answer was inadvertently revealed at by Domenico Montanaro in his interview with “undecided” voter Oliver Clark, one of the Town hall debate questioners … …the Sunday before last, I received a call from the Gallop Poll. They asked a few questions regarding my choice in the Presidential election. They asked who I would vote for. I said most likely I would be voting for Barack Obama. They...

    I'm rather skeptical as to whether or not the composition of focus groups is truly reflective of the electorate, or of "undecided" voters. CNN and Fox News both had such groups featured tonight. How are these groups put together? Do the participants get paid? I would imagine that they do. Is that truly reflective of the electorate? I know that the little focus group meters they have seemed off. When McCain was sticking it to Obama, it seemed like the GOP line never really went up that high. Like, for example, when the debate turned to spending and McCain called...

    National Review's KerrySpot looks at a NPR feature that interviews swing voters, and one swing voter in particular: John Ridley, who is also an NPR contributor. First, isn't getting your "man on the street" from the payroll list a little on the lazy side? It's like Ted Baxter using Bernie as his "common man." And does NPR really think their staff represents a sample slice of America? Next thing you know they'll refer to Cokie Roberts as a "soccer mom" and Click and Clack as "NASCAR dads." Anyway, Ridley doesn't seem terribly unbiased. He thinks the Swift Boat Veterans for...

    Saturday, November 17, 2007 CNN's six "undecided voters" were all Democratic operatives    UPDATES BELOW - CNN hits bottom and digs: All six debate questioners appear to be Democratic Party operatives. So much for "ordinary people, undecided voters". To paraphrase Junior Soprano, CNN is so far up the DNC's hind end, Howard Dean can taste hair gel. In a nutshell, CNN's six "undecided voters" were: A Democratic Party bigwigAn antiwar activistA Union officialAn Islamic leaderA Harry Reid stafferA radical Chicano separatist Wow. This looks "rather" like a scandal. Hot Air: ...You’d think the network’s audience might want to know who...

    Sometimes, two fascinating pieces of information come to the Kerry Spot e-mail box almost simultaneously.Kerry Spot reader Steve, a fountain of fascinating information, broke down the numbers of how the undecided voters would have to break to give each swing state for Bush or for Kerry.Using the most recent averages of the Battleground polls found on I created a table that determines the number of undecided voters from each state that would be required for either Bush or Kerry to win. This is done by assuming that 20% of the overall ranks of the undecided won't vote at all...

    .............."It's 2000 all over again," said pollster John Zogby, who does a daily tracking survey of 1,211 voters for the Reuters news agency. Zogby's latest poll, which was taken Wednesday through Friday, had Bush up by 4 percentage points with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. Earlier last week, his survey had found Kerry up by 3 points. Zogby said the oscillations in his survey tracked very closely with the patterns in a similar poll he conducted in the final phase of the 2000 campaign. ....The pollster said the movements in his current poll are...

    People, there are many like me out there that do have people in their lives who have not made up their minds. I have a Wife who is very private about her voting habits. (She leans Democrat so it is a major source of anxiety in our relationship.)She has concerns about Bush such as job outsourcing because she was a Boeing employee and was laid off as a result of this. (as she see's it). Also she has concerns about unemployment in this country. (Yeah, I know?) She likes Bush's stance on the War on terror.She needs education on George...

    the Daily Times Delaware County Pa The Undecided: Young voters step up to the plate By WILLIAM BENDER , 10/11/2004 The fact that someone like Nicole Mattucci is still undecided three weeks before Election Day should be cause for concern for John Kerry’s Pennsylvania campaign. It means President Bush is connecting with liberal-minded college students in a state Kerry must carry to win the November election. Mattucci, 19, of Middletown, is pro-choice, anti-war and doesn’t like the direction in which the economy is heading. She thinks banning assault weapons makes sense and banning gay marriage is ridiculous. Her values...

    Shortly before the Revolutionary War, one-third of the colonists were for independence, one-third were content with the British tax system and left-side-of-the-road travel, and one-third were neutral or completely unaware of what was going on. Naturally, for a nation seeking direction, the wise thing to do would be to base their course of action on the last second thoughts or whims of that latter third, right? That's how we seem to handle it these days. If you don't have an opinion, we'll make you have one, and sometimes even drive you to the polls! What a bad way to run...
