Undecided Voters: What Are You Waiting For?

As Election Day 2012 draws closer, we want to hear from undecided voters around Coventry.


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.

No one that gets elected seems to be able to get anything done. If one says up the other says down out of spite. What happened to by the people for the people? I refuse to vote on the premise of the lesser of 2 evils. I don't hear an answer from either candidate on how to fix this problem and start working for the good of the people again.

however..a non vote is a positive vote for the worst of (in your own opinion) the candidiates. I get what you're saying. Politicians are about self preservation first much like car sales people. The rub is to say they have your best interest in mind. The practice is to do whatever it takes to stay in office for monetary gain or sell a car.
