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.

Would love to hear specifics on debt reduction, plans to incentivize the younger social safety net recipients to actually work a low paid job, firm stands to stop borrowing money to hand over to all who receive foreign aid, justifications from the GOP as to why we need an even bigger military machine than what we have, flat income tax for everyone, specifics on what corporate welfare loopholes & subsidies will be closed, and most importantly, a short term plan for the economy that can be evaluated in a single or 2 year period. Obama wants to keep the poor poor with handouts. Romney will protect those with the most wealth. The middle class will pay more either way, and the next president will ultimately leave office far richer than when he takes office.

Perhaps the reason undecided voters cant make up their minds is because they have two choices. We need voting reform here in the US. If we had an alternative vote where we rank who we want to win then third parties would have more strength. More choices and no spoiler effect is a win for everyone.

Voters align themselves with a party or candidate that reflects their own core values and beliefs. If someone is undecided at this late date, they either have no core beliefs or have not been paying attention.
