Presidential hopefuls try to reach out to the undecided swing state voters
Undecided voters and swing states, what they have in common in the 2012 Presidential Debates
A key issue this election is the amount of undecided voters in the swing states. Swing states are very important for an election because they can make or break a candidate's chances of making it into office as President.
Six to twelve percent of registered voters are undecided. Some statistics state that these undecided voters are white, in the working class, with some or no college education, and don't pay too much attention to policy issues in the nation.
Studies have shown that previous presidential debates have little to no impact on a voter's choice. But this year the debates are having an impact on undecided voters as well as independents.
Campaigns are a great way for the candidates to persuade voters. A market research firm did an experiemnet testing the reactions of undecided voters to ads. And they found that Obamas ads were working to sway swing voters while Romney's were not.
And after last night's debate, Obama's points were key to voters in Florida or Nevada. And Romney's points were important to voters in Colorado.
Even after the debate, CU students who are on the fence about their voter are wanting to hear more from each candidate to make their final decision.
So if you are still undecided about your vote, tune into the final debate next monday at 7pm.
