Did the RNC Help You Make Up Your Mind, Either Way?

Only 11 percent of voters are reportedly undecided. Are you still one of them?

Beaumontenterprises.com reports that a recent CNN poll has only 11 percent of voters undecided on which way they are going to vote in November. For all intents and purposes, the rest are pretty evenly split between reelecting the Obama/Biden ticket or giving the Romney/Ryan ticket a chance.

The Republican National Committee in Tampa, Fla., wrapped up yesterday with everyone getting a closer look at presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan. They were also given the opportunity to listen to several other speakers who support the Republican ticket.

Next week in Charlotte, N.C., the whole process will be repeated -- just with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden making their cases for re-election.

Our question, well questions really, today are: Were you undecided going in and if so, did the RNC help you make up your mind either way? Or, are you waiting to hear what comes out of the Democratic National Convention before you decide?

David, you borrowed that quote from a bumper sticker I saw last week. I don't care for either that bumper sticker or your comment. Either way, Sharon was right earlier when she sagaciously noted that most of our minds are already made up about this election. Because of that, this page has turned into a puerile group of comments.

And again , I must say how entertaining it is to follow the "it's all (blank)'s fault" debate. Want to know who's fault it really is?.... the uninformed and complacent citzenry of America. All of us citizens for the past half century who didn't exercise their civic duty properly by voting for/against a representative who did/did not represent their "best interests". It is the fault of all those before us who just assumed the legeslators were there to look after us. Well guess what, that complacent attitude left us with lawmakers doing whatever best lined their pockets and retirement plans. By wearing blinders and not researching what was happening on Capitol Hill,( the White House is just a figurehead on term limits), and listening only to a "paid for " media has gotten us where we are today. If you really are a concerned citizen who wants to change our lives for the better, get informed and vote in the local and state elections for your representatives every two years! If we all did this, in 4 years the entire House of Representatives, and by 6 years the entire Senate can be replaced! We can vote out all the professional(no term limit) politicians, and get in folks who will work together,make the hard decisions, and know that they have your best interests at heart instead of some special interest group. There you go folks- what the real problem is. and how you can be a part of an effective solution in one paragraph. seats as well

And... what about all those people who love Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and Debbie Wasserman Big Mouth and so on and so on? What if we can't convince them to do what we want to do?

The Convention showed me that Romney and Ryan will say anything to try to get elected. They have no credibility and cannot be believed. Look at the lies that they told in their speeches that even Fox News reported on: Romney’s Lies: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/post/fact-checking-mitt-romneys-acceptance-speech-at-the-gop-convention/2012/08/31/70c3d8de-f31f-11e1-adc6-87dfa8eff430_blog.html http://news.yahoo.com/fact-check-romneys-deficit-vow-lacks-specifics-004029587--politics.html http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/story/2012-08-31/mitt-romney-fact-check-republican-convention/57467252/1 http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2012/aug/30/convention-tampa-story-mitt-romney/ http://www.desmoinesregister.com/article/20120831/OPINION01/308310017/-1/SPORTS13/Another-View-We-re-seeing-campaign-able-just-ignore-facts Ryan’s Lies: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/post/paul-ryan-fails----the-truth/2012/08/29/bbfe1eac-f254-11e1-b74c-84ed55e0300b_blog.html?tid=pm_pop http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_CVN_GOP_CONVENTION_FACT_CHECK?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2012-08-30-07-31-10 http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/robert-schlesinger/2012/08/29/paul-ryan-repeats-auto-bailout-medicare-lies http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/08/30/paul-ryans-speech-in-three-words/ http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2012/aug/29/paul-ryan/paul-ryan-said-president-obama-funneled-716-billio/

I'm shocked to see this from someone registered with Patch on the Left coast. What a joke! Hey Jo, would you care to show your honesty and list some known lies from Obama while you're doing research?
