Are You A '4 Percenter?' Searching For Undecided Voters

Those who are not political junkies typically tune into the presidential race around the time the GOP and Democratic conventions kick off and organizers are trying to sway those few undecided voters.

Wisconsin has had its share of political drama this year. For some, the November election will be their fourth, fifth or sixth time to the polls, between primaries, the general election, the spring election, and the recall elections.

So we're a pretty charged up group politically speaking. But there remain among us the "4 percenters" —  undecided voters in Wisconsin.

Professor Charles Franklin, director of the Marquette Law School Poll, said last week that only 4 percent of those people polled were undecided. And with the Republican National Convention starting this week and the Democratic National Convention kicking off next week, organizers will seek to sway the minds of those undecided voters into their respective direction.

But what will undecided voters look for in their next candidate? And if you are one of them, what made you undecided?

Tell us your answer in the comments section and don't forget to take our poll.

The undecided do not have any real political vision. Indifference perhaps, or maybe just mental laziness is why. They are true followers and joiners. This is why they lurch from campaign to campaign, without any real coherence. They love smiles and slogans. Expect them to stick a wet finger in the air to test the political winds, and then break for the eventual winner. They may be followers, but nobody likes to lose.

Well said GearHead! There are many, many voters who vote on a candidate's perceived personality! It doesn't matter what he actually says.

Bren is so full of bull plop. You were voting for Obama regardless of what he said, did, thought, or decided. You are a libtard to the core.

Obama-Biden have earned my vote! Unlike Romney, who only appears to truly care about the "1 percent" and wants to destroy Medicare to help the healthcare companies make more money, Obama-Biden care about 100 percent of Americans, including the middle class, poor, disabled, business and seniors. And, they much more trustworthy than the Republican candidates, as Politifact and Fact Check have confirmed.
