The invisible undecideds.

October 7, 2016

There’s a general consensus that the only thing people are undecided about at this stage of the game is whether to vote or not.

For all the fevered campaign hogwash about capturing the undecided vote, both Clinton and Trump staffers know the real problem is going to be getting people off the couch.

With the Trump campaign now running ads pleading with people to register to vote, the couch warmers may well decide this election.

It seems that the Trump acolytes have discovered that converting viewers to voters isn’t as easy as they may have thought.

As one voter put it, “It’s hard to get excited about voting for the most brazenly crooked politician in the last 100 years or voting for a man who is so obviously incapable of learning from his mistakes.”

These are the people that don’t get polled.

People like Madge.

A former GOP party worker, she says she has never missed a presidential election and doesn’t plan on missing this one. She isn’t so much voting for Trump, but rather against Hillary Clinton..

” Mrs. Clinton is the figurehead for people whose publicly stated goal is to destroy the United States as we know it. That should be reason enough to vote for him.”

And therein lies the rub.

Many people are so wrapped up in the personality of the two candidates, they’ve lost sight of the bigger picture.

From the day Barack Obama first uttered the words “fundamentally change America” the Democratic party became something it had never been before.

With new revelations and leaks coming out almost daily that point to institutional corruption and collusion at the highest levels of the Obama-Clinton administration, it would have behooved the Trump camp to stop making this about Trump, and more about the country.

With a month to go they can still make that argument, maybe at the second and third debates.

Whether it even makes a difference at this point is another story.

In fact, it’s by no means sure the egocentric Trump will even be able to make the campaign about America rather than himself for a full 30 days.

If he can’t, then he will become the single worst  loser in history.

That’s actually completely irrelevant compared to what we will really lose.
