Prior to the Vice-presidential debate, the Republican Party released (prematurely, and accidentally) their post-debate spin. The post talked about how the Republican VP candidate had won the debate, and talked about his strengths in the debate.
I manage the social media for our Foundation - I know how easy it is to push the wrong button, but I thought it was symbolic of many voters - and even beyond the election. just as the Republican Party's "spin" was already written, our minds are made up - and not just about the presidential race.
Studies showing that once we have made up our minds, it is hard to change it, because our brains use new data to support what we already know - we craft what we see to enforce what we think. We've all seen that, haven't we?
How can we have open minds?
