Undecided In Iowa

September 7, 2012, 4:55 PM by Perry Groten

Undecided In Iowa
LARCHWOOD, IA -

Battleground states like Iowa could loom large in determining which candidate wins in November.  The key will be which side is able to sway the undecided, an ever-shrinking sliver of the electorate.

Polls show that undecided voters are down in the single digits. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are such polar opposites on so many issues, there are few gray areas that might otherwise keep voters on the fence. 

But we found one voter in Larchwood, who's still shopping for the candidate of her choice.

To undecided voter Shelby Leloux of Inwood, Iowa, picking between a president or choosing a baby food brand is a toss-up. Leloux admits having a tough time making up her mind on a lot of things.

"I'm indecisive about what I'm going to wear, what I want to eat, where I want to go for the weekends," Leloux said.

Leloux might not settle on a presidential candidate until Election Day.

"I'm more a on-the-moment type of person," Leloux said.

Regardless of which side of the political aisle they're on, undecideds are walking a middle-ground for now, waiting on a candidate who best addresses the issues important to them.

"Good schooling, good healthy food, healthy ways, now to raise your children right," Leloux said.

Leloux says she's been so busy raising her seven-month old daughter, she really hasn't had much time to pay attention to the presidential campaign,  For now, she's more interested in the products on the store shelf, instead of politicians on the stump.

Leloux says she's always leaned Republican in the past, but her party affiliation isn't a factor this year.  She says Friday's visit by Romney is good for Iowa voters, but it won't influence how she'll vote in November.
