Quite aside from the obvious bombast of last Sunday’s Presidential Debate, one of the more surprising take-aways was that most of the private citizens in the audience identified themselves as ‘undecided’ voters.
In fact, in national polling, there is still a large number of Americans who say they are still ‘ undecided’ about their vote on November 8th.
This election campaign has been going on for the better part of two years and the two major candidates for America’s top job have been in the news and making headlines the entire time.
You don’t have to dig too deep to find out where these two stand on important issues and it would be an immense understatement to suggest that Clinton and Trump are world’s apart on the key issues.
So, with all the publicity and controversy, how can so many voters still be ‘undecided’?
Voter indifference is certainly not unique to America; we have bouts of it in Canada on a regular basis.
Too often, we pay little attention to elections or sometimes don’t bother to vote at all, then whine and complain about the results after the fact.
Too many of us are more concerned about who wins Dancing With The Stars than we are with who is elected to run our country.
As a wise man said; you get the government you deserve !
