Portait des indécis de l'élection 2016

On estime à 15% le nombre des indécis aux États-Unis pour cette élection alors qu'on en compte habituellement 5% aussi tard dans une campagne. Les indécis n'apprécient guère le choix qu'on leur propose cette année et on se demande bien en faveur de qui ils pencheront mardi.

 "“The group that is slightly more undecided as a whole is the youth vote,” says John Della Volpe, director of polling at Harvard’s Institute of Politics. “They will decide this election.”

 So, why can’t they choose? For most of them, it’s because they are deeply unsatisfied with both Clinton and Trump, although several did find redeeming qualities in both. “I believe Donald Trump is more courageous and Hillary is more personable than people think,” H. Nguyen, a 53-year-old business owner in Hudson County, New Jersey, told me.

Interestingly, half of the voters also said that they would likely have not been undecided at this point had the Republicans nominated a more traditional candidate, such as Ohio Gov. John Kasich or Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. In other words, 2016 might not have been the year of the outsider candidate—at least not for these balloters."
