What is it about Undecided voters?

GOP PIG

Why are undecided voters swayed so easily? Don’t they have any opinion about the difference between Democrats and Republicans, let alone the various (nearly-)single-issue parties, such as the Green or Libertarian parties?

Do Undecideds look at each major partisan issue and are unable to form an opinion? I imagine the Undecided voters go through a process like this:

1. Abortion: Gee, I’m undecided about that. Is a fertilized egg a human being? Should the government decide whether a woman should have a baby or not? Hmmm…. such a close call. Instead of thinking about it and forming an opinion and then deciding which of the parties best represents my interests in this regard, I think I’ll skip this issue and go on to the next.

2. Iraq War: Gee, I’m undecided about the Iraq war. Maybe if we stay there another 6 years I’ll be able to make up my mind. After all, I still haven’t made up my mind whether I like the Korean war — er, police action.

3. … and so on down the line, eliminating all the “hard” questions until we reach the only issue they can understand and have formed an opinion on: LIPSTICK!

    In all fairness, I read about an undecided woman who was caring for her adult son who had had a stroke last year. To her, the election wasn’t all that important in the scheme of things.
