Lynn Vavreck writing for NYT asks, "who are undecided voters anyway?" She first cites conflicting polls that show there aren’t that many of them. So then, right off you can easily decide to dismiss them. She then cites their history of not voting after all. So then, you can easily confirm your decision to dismiss them as having any importance. She then states they’re unlikely to have any affect whatsoever. So then, after all that you very easily decide your confirmation of your instinct is right after all and the entire pursuit of not bothering to comprehending them is correct. And you can decide all this by the title if you haven’t already decided by the source, a silly woman writing for the NYT.
Nevertheless, here’s what Lynn Vavreck comes up with. We can make it fast because it's all so absurd.
* women more than men (so what)
* younger more than older (so what)
* Latinos more than blacks with whites in the middle (Racist!)
* undecideds are more uncertain about political issues (of course)
** Trump’s wall
** minimum wage
** undecided about favorability of Republicans and about Dems, and Obama. (All your silly liberal concerns, not mine)
I’ll tell you who they are without any poll responses. I’ll tell you who undecided voters are without any research whatsoever. I’ll describe them off the top of my head. But I don't have to because you know all this too. So, for a laugh.
* They’re the people who cannot tell which is more important, their own self-identity or the country.
* They’re the people who take 30 minutes to decide what to wear each day.
* They’re the people who wait in line at fast food and then study the menu when they get to the counter.
* They’re the people who use their credit for cash to buy pot.
* They’re the people with poor sources of information.
* They’re the people who wait so long to decide anything that they miss the chance.
* They’re the people who cannot trust their own gut instinct.
* They’re the people who respect opinions of others over their own.
* They’re the people who flip a coin and let chance decide.
* They’re the people with difficulty managing money.
* They’re the people who anguish over which line to join at grocery store checkout. Then change.
* They’re the people who wear the wrong shoes.
* They’re the people who find too many options overwhelming.
* They’re the people standing in front of movie rental boxes for way too long.
* They’re the people who cannot decide what to have on their pizza.
* They’re the people who strongly prefer others to decide.
* Who cannot plan a vacations.
* Who decide purely on emotion.
* Who are permanently late.
* Who cannot choose their own school, their courses, their teachers.
* Who then question their own decisions.
* They’re the people frightened and anguished by important decision.
* Who don’t know where to sit in a theater.
* Who prefer more involved government.
* Who ask, "Which looks better?"
* Who ask, “Does this make my ass look big?”
But don't be fooled.
* They are NOT the people who ask you, “So what do you think about (any current subject)?” That’s merely the opener used by decisive people by way of forcefully arguing their own settled opinion.
