Fully embracing the fallacy that the state of the economy is dependent on the policies of the sitting president, local undecided voter was still trying to decide today as to which candidate would be better for the economy in general and for him specifically.
“It is one of those situations when you can inadvertentlyÂ vote for someone that is less than optimal for you, because you did not know that at the time” said the undecided voter to himself for the second time in a one hour window.
“If I vote for Obama, then four years from now, would I be happier, richer, healthier?” he pondered lost in thoughts swirling around uncertain information “What if I vote for Romney?”
“How can I know for sure?”
Then he shook his head, looked up and said: “Nah, screw it. I have not thought this hard since putting all my money in the stock exchange and subsequently losing them. Apparently both these guys did better than me in that aspect because they know what I do not and they are never going to tell me. So I am not going to waste any more time thinking about this. And now that I think about it, I am not going to even waste time to vote at all!”
