    people don't see a reason to settle on a candidate until closer to the election.

    If they're upset with the incumbent, for any reason, they'll say they're going to vote for whoever is their opponent.

    Then, when you get to Sept/Oct, when the election is only a few weeks away and they have to seriously think about who to vote for, they start to actually LOOK at the candidates, and often change their minds.

    Just like that dress might look great on the rack, and you might like it on the model, but when you are seriously thinking of buying it you go try it on - and find out it doesn't fit you right, will need major alterations, or it just looks like crap on YOU.

    Then you go back and wear the same one you wore to the last event, because you KNOW that looks good, even if you really wanted something new.
