Poll: 25 Percent of Voters Don't Care

Bad news for campaign hypers: a new poll reveals that just over two months from the election, almost a quarter of registered voters are undecided or, if they have chosen their candidate, are ambivalent about their support. These "persuadable voters" are most often young men with less education and income than those who have already firmly decided. They skew neither Democratic nor Republican and sometimes don't even know what might make them decide. Given that their vote could determine the election, campaigns are hoping they can make them excited—and soon.
