AP: Poll: Big swath of voters undecided, unexcited
This would suggest very few polls are reliable right now. Depending on any significant events, economic, or otherwise, things could change rapidly. Via the AP.
Call them maybes.
Two months out from Election Day, nearly a quarter of all registered voters are either undecided about the presidential race or iffy in their support for a candidate, an Associated Press-GfK poll shows.
These voters could well prove decisive in a close contest. And they will be tough nuts for Barack Obama and Mitt Romney to crack.
Just 29 percent of them have a strong interest in the campaign, compared with 51 percent of those who’ve made up their minds. So no, they won’t be hanging on every word coming out of the national political conventions in Tampa, Fla., and Charlotte, N.C., over the next two weeks.
Who are they? These so-called persuadable voters are more often men than women. They are a bit younger than those who’ve made up their minds. They have less education and income. And they are far less partisan.
