Has The Political Antics Changed Anyone’s Mind?
October 10, 2016
Two quick thoughts.
From the time each major party had made the selection—and that was prior to the conventions—the vast majority of the nation who votes knew which candidate they would support for the November balloting. Everything since then is only either increasing or decreasing the degree of their enthusiasm for their decision.
I am not at all convinced there is an honest number of undecided voters for the top of the ballot selection. I suspect that some when asked offer up a response for the pollster which is not reflective of how the voter actually stands on the question.
In the end this is a base election which does not then allow the broad consensus required for governing That really is more troubling than all that we have seen thus far.
