In two sentences, how would you sway an undecided voter to vote for your candidate in the presidential contest?

Even though recent polls show that undecided voters are a small percentage of likely voters, their votes could be enough to tip races one way or another. Today’s Question: In two sentences, how would you sway an undecided voter to vote for your candidate in the presidential contest?

  • Paul

    I’d ask them to watch the countless videos available of Romney contradicting himself on just about every issue and position in this election. And then I’d pray they understood the danger of voting for someone like that.

  • Al Willig

    Mitt Romney’s only real and heart-felt agenda is to be president of the United States. I guess that’s only one sentence.

  • Paul

    Financiers became very wealthy by

    creating the recession that destroyed the lives of millions of people. Civil rights lawyers help protect people’s lives.

  • Trent

    I would ask them to pretend they were hiring manager, and whether they would choose a candidate with experience and who was slowly (but surely) righting a mess left by his predecessor, or if they would hire a person with a background very similar to the predecessor, who refused to explain HOW he would fix the mess, and merely said, “trust me, I am up to the job.” I would also ask them to consider if they personally were in a job interview, if they thought they would be hired if they constantly gave contradictory answers to questions, and if they refused to give details of how they would perform the job and instead said, “trust me, I am up to the job.”

  • Clark

    Obama Economic Agenda: When the facts don’t fit, lie to the American people and continue on the road to economc disaster. The math of of current obligations don’t add up, something Obama has never understood.

  • Steve the Cynic

    If you think we should double down on the policies that led to the Great Recession, vote Republican.

    If you believe bluster and bragadocio make for good foreing policy, vote Republican.

  • Larry M.

    Obama has cleaned up the mess that was left him and is looking to the future. Which Mitt Romney would govern, the one that believes and supports the policies that created the mess or the one wearing the new moderate face he has put on for the general electorate?

  • Lance

    With trillion dollar deficits in each of the last four years, and the same projected for the foreseeable future, we will soon be going over the fiscal cliff like Greece. This is not the change you were looking for.

  • Joberg

    Obama believes fairness is forced income redistribution rather then true economic growth. Economic inequality is immoral and equality of outcomes is the new Obama policy.

  • CLee

    A dupe is someone who is the object of trickery or deceit. Don’t be a dupe, think about what the important questions are and do your own research with source materials and unbiased, educated analysis then vote your OWN conscience (not just what some spin master tells you to do).

  • James

    If you vote for Romney, you get a polished and experienced executive business leader. Unfortunately you also get the rest of the Republican party, including representatives like Michelle Bachman.

  • bob

    This is a ludicrous question. If there are any undecided voters left anywhere, I’ll eat my hat.

  • Regnar James

    We are headed for another Great Depression (let’s just call it GD 2.0). It does not really matter who is trying to bark orders.


  • Martin

    Show me the math. Show me the tax returns.

  • Pearly

    The economy is Bush’s fault. The death of Ambassador Stevens is the fault of a video.

  • Gordon near Two Harbors

    Why would you want to return control of the economy to the same nuts who wrecked it in the first place?

    Why would you vote for anyone from a political party that embraces the same anti-union, anti-gay, and anti-science ideology as 1930s Germany?

  • Gary F

    President Obama and his State Department LIED AND COVERED UP the facts and details regarding the Benghazi Embassy killings. President Obama DOES NOT LIKE the United States of America.

  • david

    There is a reason why the republicans have to lie, steal, cheat, cater to bigots, and spread wild ridiculous conspiracy theories to win. They have become too extreme and their time has passed.

  • Gary F

    So Obama wasn’t lying about the Benghazi attack?

  • suzie

    I’m undecided because I don’t trust the candidates or their parties. Two sentences won’t help me decide.

  • GregX

    Romney – grand plans, no details and changing rhetoric every week indicates uncertainty and confusion in leadership. Obama – constant beliefs, steady progress and balance resulting in a clear path forward.

  • Jim G

    For the past three decades the Republicans and the top 1% have been waging a one sided class war on the middle class, and they are now winning with wealth disparity levels not seen since the 1920’s.

    Vote for Obama because he was raised in a middle class home with middle class values.

  • kevins

    Although much has been said lately about the plight of the wealthy, it is poverty that creates many of our nation’s problems. Because Mr. Ronmey kows nothing about poverty, it follows that he knows nothing about how to solve many of our nation’s problems.

  • Truth

    i would tell them to think about robot romney and the same republican ways as usual because he will lead this country to hell!!

  • Robert

    Jill Stein (Presidential Green Party Candidate) is calling for a Green New Deal that would create 25 million sustainable jobs to end unemployment in America, and shift to a new, more democratic economy and politics. “As part of this, I want to see a thriving commercial hemp industry providing food, fiber, and other products from the hemp plant. This will be good for the environment and good for our economy. A win/win solution is within reach if we can just shake off the Bush/Obama past and embrace a rational, effective drug policy for the 21st century.”

  • Jonathan

    “By managing marijuana like alcohol and tobacco – regulating, taxing and enforcing its lawful use – America will be better off. The billions saved on marijuana interdiction, along with the billions captured as legal revenue, can be redirected against the individuals committing real crimes against society.”

    -Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson

  • Uncle Bruce

    Whataya Repugnantkin or Dummycrat?

    Or someone who votes awake?

  • ann


  • Mark

    President Obama has demonstrated his commitment to making life better for the vast majority of Americans.

    Romney has demonstrated his willingness to put profits over people.

  • OWS

    Occupy the Heart Mind.

    Make your vote from there.

  • georges

    If you like having an employee that steals your great great great great grandchildrens money and gives it to his wealthy BFF Wall Street buddies, and Arab countries that hate us, then vote for Obama.

    If you would like to terminate that guy from the list of U.S. employees, then vote for someone else.

  • Michael

    Think Green.

    Now think Purple.
