Politico and George Washington University released a Tarrance/LRP poll that concludes 8% of people are undecided about the presidential election. The most common profile of an “undecided”? Single white females, 18-29 years old, employed without a college degree – and a low-income earner. She’s Protestant but skips church. She skips nationally televised debates, too.
Advisers to both candidates might want to consult Greg Garcia, the creator of one of the most popular TV comedies among single white females, FOX’s “Raising Hope.” The premise: a clueless 23-year-old boy-man must raise his infant daughter, Hope, conceived (ill-conceived?) during a potentially dangerous one-night stand. (This happens, even on FOX.) The main character, Jimmy, goes about the difficult task with the help of his loving and dysfunctional family. Where is the mother? Well, she’s dead. Yes, turns out that the baby mama, in this case, tended to kill past boyfriends, so she was sentenced to death and electrocuted. Undecided voters are here. Why is a question keeping campaign strategists up all night.
