Undecided? Perhaps Not

A study suggests that self-proclaimed undecided voters are probably not all that undecided. According to the report:
A dozen years of research and hundreds of published
studies suggest that people have implicit belief systems that may contradict their declared beliefs. These implicit beliefs can affect actions, such as how they vote at the moment it comes time to explicitly decide.

In other words, predispositions get in the way even for undecided voters. Bradley Effect? A surprise next week? Hard to say, but fascinating stuff.
