How many of you are actually undecided?

Recommended Posts



I voted for McCain in 2008, but will vote for Obama this year.

You are a rarity. Would seriously like to know your top 5 reasons. Would have suspected you an Obama supporter from the start. Maybe the transition from McCain to Obama. Seriously curious.

I know several people doing this.

Prob GJ. I dont like Obama or Romney, however I will say that if its extremely close i will vote for Obama because a romney presidency scares the ever living poo out of me (not that one vote matters, but still).

such shitty times

fwiw, depending on the state you are in, one vote can make a difference...

What is their reasoning?

In general it's that Obama's not been terrible and the Republicans have been coming across like nut jobs.

Sounds a little shallow to me, but that is the general population. Thanks

I gave a simplified answer to cover the general reason for several people making the switch. I didn't intend for it to be in depth.

Once again, people can't separate the past from current trending & rhetoric.

If I was afraid he was going to enact any gun confiscation laws, I wouldn't have voted for him in 08.

His base is pushing him more & more, especially after this latest shooting. He blames lobbying for not being able to push through even more reform.

What's with people jumping to the most extreme on here?

Probably because you are suggesting an extreme in confiscating your guns. Why would you think Obama would confiscate your guns? His speeches lately in the direct wake of tragedies have been vague illusions to the idea of maybe possibly doing something other than nothing, but he has not set forth any definite plans and honestly he isn't going to unless the democrats have a huge majority in the senate and house, and even then I have my doubts since they're going to want to maintain that control and something like "confiscating guns" would likely get them kicked out immediately the next term.

This is kinda where I'm at... Romney seems like a douchebag used car salesman...

I think would vote for Obama without question I think if this wasn't gonna be his last term... I'm afraid that without the restrictions he has felt of having to get re-elected he might fall much farther left than he's been so far... he's played it right in the center imo this first term, and in some ways (militarily mostly) he's been far more conservative than I expected. Ironically though, Romney may turn out to be more left than Obama has been...

I'm undecided in that I would have a really hard time going to vote for Obama again.

I would rather be buried alive then cast a ballot for Romney, but Obama is just wrapping up 4 years of a REPUBLICAN PRESIDENCY.

He promised me change, and I got a republican health care plan.

I got more war, more GITMO, more patriot act.

We have more military commisions, less rights and drones in American airspace watching American citizens.

More money for Defense contractors and Corporations, less money for the people that actually make this country run.

How the fug did we fail to implement SOME kind of regulation after the entire economy tanked?

Everydamnbody else on earth did, but not ignorant ass america.

We just stay on the path, right into oblivion.

That wasn't the "change" I had in mind when I cast my ballot in 2008.

That isn't "change" at all.

See, that's where you're wrong again. Not once did I say anything about 'confiscating' guns. That's where liberals are as bad as conservatives, at jumping to conclusions. I was talking about reform & new laws, not destroying the second amendment.

Nobody expects him to send officials to houses to collect weapons except crazies.
