It’s the morning after the first presidential debate. I’m scrolling through my social media feeds and it’s become quite apparent that everyone is either for candidate A or candidate B. Okay, there are a few for third-party candidates too, but not many.
I also note that if you choose a side and publicly announce your choice, you are going to be wrong; in some opinions, dead wrong about your choice.
In one instance I saw a comment regarding the Save The Day video that has been making the rounds. The commenter said, “I need to take a look at this, if Robert Downey Jr is anti-Trump, I will just die!” Now I don’t know the person that made this comment, so I can’t say how serious they are, but it kind of summed up what I’ve seen others saying about how they are making their decision on who to vote for. Instead of relying on facts and doing the research themselves, they are relying on the opinions of someone famous that they have no personal relationship with, to make what most would consider one of the most important decisions you are faced with every four years in your adult life.
So I come back to my original question in the title of this post. Who are the undecideds? And more importantly, will they actually vote on election day? Or will they choose to stay home because they can’t make up their mind? And if that is the case, then the election of who will run our country for the next 4 years will be decided by approximately half (54.87% in 2012) of the voting age population.

Regardless of who you are planning on voting for, please, make sure to go vote.
