Since you misinterpreted my post, there is nothing more to respond to.
IOWs, no that is not what I said. But you may twist and spin to your heart's desire.
Surely you would consider the various hard liners of Dems and Pubs who block up their ears and who vote their party line regardless of Facts, as the stupid and thoughtless? So why are you saying that the independants, who are the usual Swing vote and whom Romney and Obama are fighting over, are the thoughtless and stupid?
The stupid and thoughtless are already spoken for. The lack of much change in polling is another indication of that.
