    The library at the Center of Government Affairs at U.C. Berkeley was packed with students and staff, eager to watch the final debate in the race for California governor.

    But unlike about 20-percent of California voters, most everyone in the room already had their minds made up on who they would vote for.

    Only one person, named Polly Armstrong, was undecided.

    Armstrong has a political leaning. She is a life-long democrat, but in this case she says she hasn't made up her mind.

    Armstrong watched intently as the candidates went back-and-forth over taxes, job creation and the state's economy.  She was hoping one would help her decide.

    It didn’t happen.

    "Jerry Brown, I’d love to sit and talk with him," said Armstrong. "I just don’t know if I can vote for him … (Whitman), she’s for so many things I don’t believe in, I’m really still undecided."
