Undecideds amount to fewer than usual

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Undecided voters across the country likely have not been engaged in the race until recently. That's the word from Western Michigan University Associate Professor of Political Science Peter Wielhouwer.

"People who are truly undecided are primarily people who have not been paying attention until, say, Labor Day," Wielhouwer told WKZO.

He also said the reason why there is such a scramble over undecided voters is because there are fewer of them, with the race between President Obama and former Governor Mitt Romney seemingly very tight.

"Usually we have 15% to 20% of Americans come into the fall undecided," Wielhouwer said. "But this year, it's been remarkably small - less than 10%."

Obama and Romney have one more debate before the election - on Monday, October 22 from Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida. It will be moderated by Bob Schieffer of CBS News.
