I’m astonished by the vox pops that journalists are doing in the US as they interview ‘undecided’ voters. Time and time again one hears people whining about Obama that they “don’t really know anything about him”. On what planet have these people been living for the past year? I know that most voters aren’t terribly interested in politics, but this is ludicrous. Does it mean that they can’t think of a respectable way of explaining why they’re not going to vote for a black candidate?
