WHAT IF GOD WEREN'T ONE OF US?:


In White House Race, Twice As Many Voters Uncommitted Compared to Four Years Ago
(Rasmussen Reports, July 30, 2008)

[W]hile much has been made of John McCain’s struggles with his party’s conservative base, 33% of the uncommitted voters are Democrats while only 19% are Republicans. Forty-eight percent (48%) are not affiliated with either major political party. [...]

This year, 37% of the uncommitted voters plan to vote for a Democratic Congressional candidate while 22% say they’ll vote for the GOP. But, when asked which way they’re leaning in the race for the White House, 26% say McCain and 19% say Obama. Twenty percent (20%) say they still prefer a third-party candidate.

Uncommitted Republicans are far more likely to lean towards McCain than uncommitted Democrats are to lean towards Obama.

No surprise. Bush isn't running this time around.

"Uncommitted Republicans are far more likely to lean towards McCain than uncommitted Democrats are to lean towards Obama."

Bingo. These "uncommitted" Dems just don't want to tell themselves (or some stranger on the phone) that they're going to vote for Maverick.
