This is amazing to me:
In spite of clichés about Nascar dads and Walmart moms, the actual share of voters nationally who are up for grabs is probably between just 3 percent and 5 percent in this election, polling experts say. The Obama and Romney campaigns are expected to spend on the order of $2 billion, in part to try to sway this tiny share of the electorate.
It’s reminiscent of the Coke/Pepsi war. They’re trying to get people who drink water for free to buy soda.
One thought on “This is amazing…”
This is similar to how small minorities can hold way more power than their numbers warrant in parliamentary governments such as they have in Israel. Without the transparency.
