One-Fourth Of U.S. Voters Are Still Uncommitted in Presidential Race

It is always an amazing thing to me how many people claim to be “uncommitted” each election cycle. This year is no different. this year is no different.

As Fox News reports,

They shrug at President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney. They’re in no hurry to decide which one to support in the White House race. And they’ll have a big say in determining who wins the White House.

One-quarter of U.S. voters are persuadable, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll, and both Obama and Romney will spend the next four months trying to convince these fickle, hard-to-reach individuals that only he has what it takes to fix an ailing nation.

It’s a delicate task. These voters also hate pandering.

“I don’t believe in nothing they say,” says Carol Barber of Iceland, Ky., among the 27 percent of the electorate that hasn’t determined whom to back or that doesn’t have a strong preference about a candidate.

Like many uncommitted voters, the 66-year-old Barber isn’t really paying attention to politics these days. She’s largely focused on her husband, who just had a liver transplant, and the fact that she had to refinance her home to pay much of his health bill. “I just can’t concentrate on it now,” she says before adding, “If there were somebody running who knows what it’s like to struggle, that would be different.”

John Robinson, a general contractor from Santa Cruz, California, is paying attention, but is turned off by both candidates saying, “I’m just bitter about everybody. They just keep talking and wavering. There’s nothing I can really say that’s appealing about either one of them.”

Both men are spending massive amounts of money and time trying to win voters across America, and neither of them really bringing much to the table, nor are they stirring up excitement in either of their camps. They both waver on issues and seem to change their stance depending on the crowd they speak to.

There is no doubt they will settle by election day, but it is telling that both men have a historical record in public service and yet people keep listening, hoping they will tickle their ears with something more that will cause them to pull the lever for them in November.
