(Video) Voters’ voices: One truly undecided voter

Filed by KOSU News in Public Insight Network.

Just days before the 2012 presidential election, Lisa Boylan, of Forest Lake, Minn.,  still hasn’t made up her mind about who to vote for. Being married to a national guardsman is pulling her one way, but her personal experience with health care and public assistance is pulling her another. And she says she looks at everything through the lens of a mother.

Lisa voted for Barack Obama in 2008, but she’s drawn to Mitt Romney’s business experience. Lisa is the first to admit she hasn’t paid close attention to the campaign so far, but here in the final days of the election season, she is devouring information about both candidates’ governing record.

By the way, Lisa’s favorite website for comparing the candidates so far is OnTheIssues.org, though she says the site’s political quiz keeps recommending she vote for either Joe Biden or Mitt Romney. Not helpful.
