Decision looms for undecided voters

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Not everyone is confident in their choice for president of the United States.  Undecided voters represent a sliver of the electorate. With a seemingly neck and neck race, those "undecideds" are getting a lot of attention.

The clock is ticking for those who haven't cast their ballots.

Atlanta construction worker Darryl Phipps said that he still hasn't make up his mind on who he will vote for on Tuesday.

"One person's kind of more for the poor people, one person's for the rich people. There's nobody for the man in the middle --  the working class," said Phipps.

Phipps says work has dried up in the last few years, hard times that also resonate with Binu Abraham, who says he doesn't see any great benefit in either candidate.

"I'm not sure Romney's really connected to the people…middle class people like me.  And I don't know if Obama's going to do better than the last four years," said Abraham.

That  dilemma has those who have decided trying to help others still on the fence:

"I'm trying to get a lot of my friends to go out to vote because it's very important for them also. Most of them are undecided because they don't really know what's going on," said Jamal Austin.

Others that FOX 5's Kaityln Pratt talked with said they don't plan on voting at all. They said they're frustrated with a campaign season they call "negative at best."
