FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
With just a little more than a week to go, most Americans have made up their mind who they're going to vote for on November 4th. According to the latest CNN Poll of Polls, 51 percent say they're voting for Obama. And 43 percent say they're voting for McCain. Six percent of voters say they're still not sure.
In battleground states like Florida, Colorado, Missouri and Pennsylvania, anywhere from 92 to 94 percent of the voters say they've already made up their minds for either Obama or McCain.
But a lot can happen in a week's time. Especially in this campaign that has been dragged out longer than any other in history and cost much, much more.
And it's gotten to be a pretty ugly campaign too, especially on the part of the McCain ticket. ACORN, William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright…The negative attacks didn't win McCain a lot of friends. Most people said they didn't like the nasty stuff. But maybe you never say never.
Here’s my question to you: What would change your mind about your vote for President?
Interested to know which ones made it on air?
Nothing will change my mind at this point. Obama has had my vote since the beginning. I voted Republican up through Bush's first term. Ever since Bush-Cheney started screwing up this country I've been voting anything but Republican.
Kay from West Virginia writes:
Obama has 30 minutes Wednesday to convince me he has the integrity, grit, and intelligence to be our next President. He could change my mind by being absolutely truthful in his remarks, answering the simple question, "Why you?" and explaining his reasoning for reinstating the marriage penalty in his tax plan.
As an independent, there are things I like about both candidates. I will vote for Obama as I fully feel he is the best choice. McCain made the decision easier for me when he chose his running mate.
Pat from Atlanta, Georgia writes:
Nothing. I am voting for the person that I believe has the right temperament to lead our country. Someone smart enough to surround himself with intelligent people, because we have big problems that are going to take new, innovative ideas to solve. I want someone who can be liked and respected on the world stage. At this point, McCain is too set in his ways and stubborn to change.
Jason from Colorado writes:
Taxes. If Obama adopted a sensible tax plan I would vote for him (I am a Democrat who is planning to vote for McCain). I don't get why he would raise taxes at all. I think we learned the hard way in the past what happens when you raise taxes in a recession. That President's name was Hoover, and all it did was make the Great Depression worse.
If it came out that Obama did something highly immoral or very unethical then I would change my vote to a 3rd candidate such as Bob Barr, but I will never, ever vote for McCain.
Let me see… ummmm...
NOTHING!!! I could not ever bring myself to vote for "an old dude playing checkers with Death" and "a bubble-headed mystery to herself and the world".
