Undecided Voters: What Are You Waiting For?

As Election Day 2012 draws closer, we want to hear from undecided voters about what they are looking for from Romney or Obama before making a decision.


While most voters have already made up their minds whether they want to re-elect President Barack Obama or cast their ballots in favor of former Gov. Mitt Romney, about 7 percent of the likely voting population remains undecided, according to the Huffington Post.

It’s that undecided group we want to reach out to today. We’d like to hear from those of you who remain unsure which way you’ll go on Nov. 6.

Here are our questions for you:

  • What has prevented you from making up your mind so far?
  • Is there a particular issue or stand on an issue you’re waiting to hear more from the candidates about?
  • What would make you favor one candidate over another?

Maybe you're passionate about the economy and haven't heard a plan that resonates yet? Perhaps you want a candidate to be more outspoken about climate change? Or, are you still trying to decide which front runner is most likely to effect positive changes in America?

Whatever the case, we want to hear your opinions. Sound off on why you're still undecided in the comments section below.

I've decided to boycott the Presidential election, as both parties put the same guy up for election: a detached, lazy, careless elitist. That's why I'm putting more focus on local races, such as Wayne Winsley, who's been fighting to get some respect out of our arrogrant incumbent Rosa DeLauro. Now, she must prove she is not an arrogant, bigoted elitist incumbent and debate Wayne Winsley FOUR times, NOT THREE, not twice, not once. FOUR times. Just like Reps. Himes and Courtney agreed to do with their challengers. As we speak, Wayne is out and about, meeting the people and chasing down the dodge ball known Jimmy Tickey, DeLauro's campaign manager, as well as combating the crude racist bigotry of the Hartford Courant. DeLauro, by contrast, huddles with her devoted sycophants, terrified of an encounter with Wayne Winsley. What is DeLauro afraid of? Being called out as a stooge of the sugar cane corporations, the ambulance-chasing tort lawyers, and other tax subsidized leeches? Or that she bought her much-vaunted chair on the House Agricultural subcommittee by transferring more than $1 million in campaign to the DNC, the going price for a position of seniority? Or that in 2009-2011 she was paid $4 million for her TARP vote to bail out the richest of the rich on Wall Street? Yes, paid. Everyone who voted for TARP got insider trading tips, which is morally equal to being given a brown sack of cash. What's DeLauro afraid of?
