There's a new Gallup poll that shows 58% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents have not yet decided which candidate they will support for the GOP's 2012 presidential nomination. While some on the left (and their accomplices in the mainstream media) may use this to further their delusion that the GOP field is weak, what it actually proves is that the majority of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents are waiting to see, hear and learn which candidate is best qualified to lead the country.
As we continue to endure the results of too many voters choosing an incompetent candidate based on first impressions, physical characteristics and lack of a verifiable record; why would anyone believe that the best course of action now is to make another snap decision before the opposing campaigns are seriously underway?
Perhaps those who expect instant support on demand do so because of decades of conditioning. They have witnessed (and often been a part of) left-leaning special interest groups whose members are told who to support, how to support them and how much of their money will be taken to support them. All this before there is time for these pre-programmed supporters to learn about alternative candidates they might actually choose for themselves.
Perhaps they don't understand why any voter would actually need to know more than the gender, race or campaign slogan of a candidate in order to choose who they want to be their president.
Perhaps they can't comprehend that there may be even more qualified candidates from which to choose. After all in their own party, their one and only choice has been actively campaigning for re-election since Inauguration Day.
The fact is most Republicans and Republican-leaning independents are simply being responsible citizens. They are waiting for enough speeches, interviews and debate performances to make an informed decision. They are researching the records of all candidates before choosing the one they believe will do the best job.
It is understandable why these are confusing concepts to the other half of the electorate who simply vote the way the mainstream media, their union bosses or their community organizers tell them to. But hopefully they will learn a few things during the campaigns too.
