Aside from politics they have a significant contrast in personality. I'm just wondering because I'm really trying to understand.
I am very much decided but my husband is not. The undecideds I know fall into two camps:

1. Historically democrat but not happy with Obama. They could have been easily swayed to vote republican but they don't like Mitt Romney and/or the social platforms of the republican party. (e.g. gay marriage, abortion, religion etc.)

2. Historically republican but don't like Mitt Romney or religion in government.

I think a lot of the undecideds aren't waiting to hear anything. They just don't love either candidate and they're trying to choose the lesser of two evils.
I fall into camp #1. I've always voted Democratic, but I would, and want to vote for a moderate Republican. I would vote for a socially liberal, fiscal conservative. I decided against Romney when he picked Ryan as his running mate. That told me he doesn't give a sh*t about my vote.
