…what a gun-toting, anti-abortion transsexual with a Gaia Complex does on Election Day…
S/he sure doesn’t spend much time counting the countries where you can get away with that.
I don’t think there are undecided voters as much as independent voters. Some folks just don’t want to be part of either political party and see it as their God given right, enshrined in the Constitution (or some other formulation) as not having to.
Americans are an ornery bunch. There is a strong contrarian flavor to American culture. Because of that, you will have a part of the population that will withhold judgement until the last minute.

RE: Who Is That Guy?
The one in the left-hand margin?
He looks so colorful. I think I prefer the sepia, version. This one reminds me too much of the oompa-loompa Kerry.
I’ve called it in already, but in the last line don’t you mean “unanswered” not “answered”?
Given how mean I am when I write there I would also have had the last sentence as” Who are these undecided people, and why do we allow them to vote?” but then as a foreigner I’m allowed to ignore the Constitution.
More seriously, nice piece.
Jeez. Nick’s fast. Corrected.
