Could they be waiting for one of the most anticipated VP debates ever? Or the other two debates? It seems like the fence sitters have been that way for longer than usual.

If I gave Obama the edge it would be because this was the foreign affairs debate and it's suppose to be McCain's strong suit, and his camp found to get that subject first on the debates... It didn't work, Obama did hold his own, and for that reason I gave him the edge, but in terms of pure substance, this debate was dead even in my own personal opinion, no knock out blows and know one owned any subject.. I'm still trying to find info on why McCain is suppose to be the foreign policy guru.. I guess because he says so.. Heil McCain.

One of the fascinating things to me is the expectation game that they are both playing. The McCain campaign has said that they were "glad" if people were bored, and Obama has moved on, calling Palin a great debater.

I think after watching Palin in her very limited interviews all registered voters are going to be watching the VP debate with great curiosity.

The reason why there isn't a shift in undecided voters. Is because there is nothing to decide on.



This message is not approved by Obama's "truth squad". The Gestapo has been alerted. You are in violation. And will be promptly arrested.

I would say the longer undecided's stay that way is a plus for McCain, they are obviously not being sheepishly sucked in by all the rhetoric. I think you'll see the majority of them settle on McCain versus the inexperienced questionable campaign of Obama.

according to the most recent polls, seems like the undecided are moving towards Obama. Apparently (and i am not an expert) they feel Mccain was to combative and came off as angry. I, personally, felt Obama was too passive, but the polls suggest that a good deal of undecided voters felt otherwise. I'm sure a great debate by Palin tomorrow night will, of course, change this.
