There has been a longstanding theory that voters cannot possibly take eight long months of potentially negative campaigning. But is that really true? Interestingly, much of the heaviest bombardment will be aimed at a handful of voters in a handful of states who are undecided now (and probably aren’t paying much attention), yet will ultimately decide the contest. The bad news is that this sliver of the American electorate that holds the results in their collective unconscious doesn’t likely include any of us. The good news is that it doesn’t include Joe Scarborough either.
