Independents will choose the Next President

 This is a follow-up to Revolution 2010's post on Mitt Romney and independent voters. In it, the data points out that Mitt Romney is by far the most popular Republican among this group. The following is current data for 7 states of the last states polled by PPP. In relation to Obama, these are the results for Independents:

The reason I'm bringing this up is that according to current data supplied by Pollster.Com, Independents lead both Democrats and Republicans in numbers:
Note: The following graph would not embed. To view the graph and it's data, click on the photo of the graph below. Once there, drag your mouse over the dots on the line graphs for specific data.

It is obvious from these figures, that in order to win a general election in 2012, you will NEED INDEPENDENTS. You can't win the general election with just Republicans.

Great post Bos.

I'm sure it will be lost on most of the Palin/Huckabee supporters. They'll tell you that the data is either irrelevant or a left wing plot.

Hey Bos,

Like that interactive graph.


Maybe Palin fans feel that if they say this independent voters phenomenon doesn't matter enough times, then it won't.

I agree with you are saying Bosman.

The media is very left wing. I believe they want our weakest candidate against Obama.

By belittling Palin, she's getting some sympathy votes in addition to her base of support.

I don't believe the media wants to put data out there that would show a vulnerability on her part.

That's why the ONLY PLACE we hear about this Independents factor, is on political blogs and not television.
