OPINION: Sophia A. Nelson says while Noonan's critiques of Harris' joy was tone-deaf and lacked a true understanding of Black women. Noonan penned a column where she was rightly perceived as treating Sen. Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, disrespectfully by implying that Harris needed to be more serious and sober-minded when she is out on the campaign trail — not dancing, laughing and being what she considered to be inappropriate.

Other polls in recent weeks have also shown the former vice president pulling ahead in states like Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan - all of which were critical in Mr Trump's 2016 victory.

“Many are longtime Republicans wrestling with what they see as a choice between two lousy candidates.”
“Some undecideds turn out to be people who’ve long felt alienated from the two big political parties.”
“They’re not following the 24-hour news cycle. The election and politics are just not a high priority.”
“One common trait: at this stage of the game, the undecided voter doesn’t fit into an easy political profile.”
“More realistically...these voters may not be motivated to vote at all in the 2020 election.”
