This isn't the worst breakdown of voter types, but very few of these are swing voters.

Ugh, I should have closed the window.

"I gave no actual argument for my position and just insulted him by calling him a 'blind liberal,' and he unfriended  me! Typical liberal refuses to hear any other point of view!"

Also, that article is confusing mostly-small groups of undecideds with groups who will actually swing the election. Also pretty blatantly some not-actually-undecideds in there.

/I actually closed the window this time. It's too late at night for this kind of shiat.

He's a "progressive" college student. It's not surprising he'd think quoting a Jerry Garcia lyric would make him sound deep.

He's really hoping his brave "out of the mainstream" stance will finally get the attention of the cute girl in his poli-sci class.

10 out of 10 he also condescendingly calls it "sportsball."

Well, his education was a waste of time and money.

I said, 'For you to be in this box and to ignore other people's views, it just shows how blind a liberal you are,' and he got very offended that I called him a blind liberal and unfriended me everywhere. I haven't talked to him since.
"You can push back with your mouth and you can push back with your vote. I'm not allowed to say anything anymore. I'm not allowed to share my views, share my thoughts. I think that's a really sad state of affairs that we're in."


You called your friend a "blind liberal" and he didn't want to be your friend anymore, who ever could have forseen that.  Yes, you are such a victim for being a Trump voter, and you just can't talk to anyone.

He didn't unfriend you because you called him a blind liberal,he unfriended you because you saw "mexicans are rapists, muslim bans, grab them by the pussy" and you saw nothing wrong.

This is what trump voters don't get.  Their support for him speaks volumes about them.  That's it.

It disturbs me to think that there are undecided voters. I mean, if you already wanted Trump as President what more do you need to see to vote for him again? If you DON'T already want Trump for President what more do you need to see to vote for Biden?

I think those undecideds are drama queens who want the excitement of pretending to struggle with the question of who gets their vote. They know damn well who they're voting for.

It reminds me of when I worked at a pizza place as a delivery driver and we'd get so busy I had to help on the phones. I could see from our database that the customer has always ordered pepperoni and sausage pizzas so I'd start by asking them if they wanted the pepperoni and sausage pizza. They'd say no and ask me to tell them each topping we offer. So I'd go through the entire list and they start asking stupid shiat like "If I got half green peppers and black olives and the other half bacon and pineapple, how much would that be?". Then they'd ask me to tell them the specials we were offering. Finally, after wasting all my time, they'd say "You know what, just give us the pepperoni and sausage pizza". FARK people like that!

o.f.f.s.

Undecided voters are like those idiots who go to McDonalds and spend 5 minutes looking at the menu board when they go to place their order. I mean, do you really need to give this any more thought? After all that has gone on since 2016, what more does a person need to make a decision?

There are 2 completely different candidates and neither will give you 100% of what you want. Accept that you will need to work on change after the election whoever gets elected.

I've been dealing a bunch of similar idiots on another forum.

They're all convinced that Biden's secretly worse then Trump, and there's no hope and violent revolution is the only option.

It's like a bunch of internet tough guys got suckered into a left-aligned Qanon.

Which is probably what happened, in all honesty.

Who else is there?

The voters have literally made our government what it is today. We are 100% responsible for what happens in our democracy. Jesus Christ. Whose fault could it possibly be that wasn't elected by voters? I don't really think you can go back to the framers for this, they farked stuff up, but everything could've been changed in the centuries since.

Seriously, who is at fault for the state of our democracy (republic) if not the very voters who choose the people that make up the government?

Fark them all.  The line is crystal clear.

Fascism         |         Democracy

You are either with us or against us.

If you haven't already chosen a side, you are a farking idiot and should have your voting privileges revoked.  What will it take to open your eyes:  a knee on your neck, a no-knock raid on your apartment, your family infected with COVID, your grandfather dying from drinking bleach, your wages garnished to pay off your forgiven student loan, your drinking water poisoned by coal plant effluent, NAZIs getting elected to your town council, WHAT?

If you vote third-party, you deserve to lose your home, your health insurance, your Social Security benefits, your right to vote, your freedom of speech, your right to unionize, and your right to worship in your own way, because that is what will happen if they win.  Bernie is not running against Trump.  GET OVER IT, hold your nose, and VOTE, DAMN IT! 

You know what?  I'm going to avoid the November 3rd rush and just say FARK YOU now.

Ignoring for a minute that there probably aren't enough of them to swing the election as TFA seems to think, it is an interesting mental exercise to put the remaining undecideds into categories:

-Diehard Bernie Bros
-Lifelong neoconservatives who don't especially like Trump.
-Millenials from conservative families who feel torn about voting differently from them (I used to date one).
-The occasional person with some mid-level disorder like Aspberger's who's putting very little weight on things like kids in cages and a lot on tax cuts because their side hustle makes them a small business owner (okay, I'm describing a specific guy I know) but is vaguely aware that Trump is evil.
-The occasional black person who is too burned out on broken promises from politicians to vote, maybe even when there's a black person on the ticket. Maybe.
-Someone neck-deep in fake news from their Facebook feed and is gullible enough to believe it.
-Non-voter constantly trying a bit too loudly to justify their inaction.
-Completely apolitical people who feel like voting is a civic duty or something.
-Complete dipshiats (overlaps with many of the above categories).

Anyone got any more?
