In answer to the question of why isn't Obama way ahead in the polls, I keep hearing political pundits say that because of summer vacations and back to school shopping the voters just aren't paying attention to the presidential race yet. Aren't paying attention yet? How can this be? The first black nominee? The Hillary back story? 24 hour cable news? Blogs? Talk radio? And voters aren't paying attention because they are too busy back to school shopping? Does anyone buy this explanation?
