Live from the streets of Charlotte: We asked delegates from across the country to describe Mitt Romney in three words.
Three words, as they say, is worth a thousand pictures. Or something…

Hello again from the Green Party convention in Baltimore! Indecision just chatted with the two women at the top of the Green Party ticket — presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein and vice-presidential candidate Cheri Honkala.
First up, Ms. Honkala, pictured here on the left. Click through for the full interview, plus our conversation with Dr. Stein (yep, the one on the right — of the photo, not the political spectrum).
Comedy Central's Indecision: So when did you find out you were going to be the Green Party's VP candidate?
Cheri Honkala: I was notified weeks ago that I was on a list, but I figured… there's no way in hell I'm gonna be chosen. Then I got the call from Jill in my living room, and I had to make the hardest decision of my life. My little boy Guillermo did the happy dance in the living room: You can't tell a 10-year-old you're running for vice president and then change your mind.
CCI: Now, historically, presidential and vice presidential candidates are quite wealthy. Can the American people relate to someone who's not a millionaire?
CH: I think the majority of people can relate to things I have to deal with, like cars breaking down, dodging bullets when you take your kid to school, figuring how to get enough money to buy a gallon of milk, figuring out which bill you're going to pay.
CCI: Not only are you not a millionaire, you're not famous. That's another thing we like in our national candidates.
CH: But as the press has been pointing out, I have a famous son.

Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson — despite most evidence to the contrary — is actually running for the actual Republican nomination for president, in between watching his neighbor's dogs. He sat down with our very own Mary Phillips-Sandy in the heart of the Indecision HQ to discuss a number of things, such as home state popularity, legalizing marijuana, Willie Nelson, gluten-free pizza and The Gary Johnson Rule.
Previously: Watch our Undercision 2012 interview with former GOP nominee Rep. Thaddeus McCotter.

Who won last night's GOP debate? In terms of the betterment of democracy, that's a tough call. Maybe we all lost. In terms of zingers, though, the clear winner was former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson, who brought down the house with this line: "My next-door neighbor's two dogs have created more shovel-ready jobs than this current administration."
As it happens, Gov. Johnson dropped by the Indecision offices a few days before the debate to participate in the second installment of our exclusive Undercision 2012 series. At the time we shot this interview he had not yet been invited to join the other GOP candidates on stage in Orlando — so naturally, we asked him why he's been missing from the debates.
Here's what he had to say about that…
Full interview coming soon, with more on Gov. Johnson's underdog campaign and why courting the stoner vote may be a lost cause.
