WASHINGTON—LorettaMitchell is 100 percent sure she’sgoing to vote in the presidentialrace come November. She doesn’thave a clue who’ll get that vote.That makes her a rare and highly sought after commodity: an unde-cided likely voter.The challenge for PresidentBarack Obama and RepublicanMitt Romney is how to lay claimto this small but mightily impor-tant swath of the electorate. Thesepeople are truly up for grabs, claimthey’re intent on voting and yetaren’t paying that much attention.With six hard-fought weeks leftin the campaign, just 7 percent of likely voters have yet to pick a can-didate, according to an AssociatedPress-GfK poll. When combinedwith those who are leaning towardone candidate or the other but farfrom firm in their choice, about17 percent of likely voters are whatpollsters consider “persuadable.”That includes 6 percent who givesoft support to Obama and4 percent for Romney.Mitchell, a 68-year-old inde-pendent from the small town of Lebanon, Ind., voted for Obamain 2008 but says both candidatesthis year strike her as “true politi-cians, and I’m just really down withWashington and politicians.”Like a lot of undecideds, sheisn’t sure what’s going to determineher ballot, and she’s in no rush todecide.The triggers for how and whenthe undecideds will make up theirminds are intensely personal.So the campaigns have to hopeto pick them off as they pursueswing groups in the most com-petitive states — segments of voterssuch as independents, seniors andwhite working-class voters.People such as Donna Olson,a 66-year-old semi-retired truck driver from Oskaloosa, Iowa, whocalls herself a former Democrat.Olson expects to wait untilNovember to make up her mind, just as she did four years ago,when her vote ultimately went toRepublican John McCain.“I don’t like either one of them,”Olson says of Obama and Romney.She specifically mentions Obama’ssupport for gay marriage andRomney’s proposed tax breaks forwealthy Americans.So how will she make up hermind?“I’m just trying to watch a lit-tle bit of everything,” says Olson.“It probably will come down toNovember, but I’m open to seewhat happens between now andthen.”At least Olson’s tuned in to therace. One huge hurdle for bothsides in the next six weeks will begetting the attention of the unde-cideds.While 69 percent of likely votersreport they’re paying a great dealof attention to the race, the figuredrops to 59 percent for persuad-able likely voters. Among the largergroup of all registered voters, just31 percent of persuadables show much interest in the campaign.
