The latest IBD-TIPP tracking poll has an interesting datum. All other measures aside, the people without party affiliation are tied at 38%, with 24% undecided. That supports the idea that the election will be decided towards the end, maybe even in the voting booth, when these undecided independents swing one way or another. They will gravitate towards the candidate who exudes optimism, hope, trust, and competence, and away from the candidate who seems out of touch with their concerns or unable to handle the complex challenges of the next four years. We’ll just have to wait to see who is which, in their view.
