An Oct. 23 writer complained about our early voting time frame being too long. However, recent estimates show that undecided voters at this time make up about 5 percent to 7 percent of the estimated voters in the coming 2012 presidential election
That’s not much in this extremely polarized atmosphere composed of one group emphasizing the concept of “fairness” central to a continuing course of certitude vs. another group willing to wrest the “Wahabis” from the West Wing in the worst way.
As a friend of mine commented today, “I wouldn’t care if my candidate committed a major felony between now and Nov 6. I’d still vote for him.” I’m sure this level of certainty flows both ways among those who’ve made their minds up – witness the creepy quiet of the conservative’s response to Mitt’s shift to more moderate positions in the debates. (Grover Norquist is waiting to hand him the pen!)
To the undecided 5 percent to 7 percent, I say, “Fine. Wait until Nov 6. Me, I’ve voted and am glad the opportunity was there to do so.”
