    Digging into the crosstabs of our ABC/Washington Post poll it’s clear that Obama has a significant problem with independent voters. On every measure, independents are significantly more disappointed with the president and more open to a Mitt Romney message.

    While 45 percent of voters overall say they approve of Obama’s handling of the economy, just 37 percent of independents believe that. Obama has a 12 point advantage among all voters on the issue of “who has presented a clearer plan for dealing with the economy – Obama or Romney?” But among independents that flips to an eight point advantage for Romney.

    Even on the issue of Romney’s record in business, independent voters are more sympathetic to the Republican. Among all voters, more thought that Romney in his work as a corporate investor did more to cut jobs than create them (42 percent to 36 percent). But among independents, that flips to a six point advantage for Romney – 43-37 percent.

    And it is only going to get worse.

    Yea__ Obama has to win the independents. I think many independents favor austerity and a sense of balance. I don't think Obama represents that.

    Yes, there are tons of polls that dispute that. None that your selective blindness will see, but if the boogieblack man scares you this much that you have to grasp onto every straw you can find i really ferar for your sanity. WATCH OUT! Obama is going to get you!

    It is really amazing how one black man in power has scared a giant brown shitstain into the republican party's collective shorts.

    What is more amazing that you can suck on your Obama blow up doll and type at the same time and not make more errors than you do.

    What's telling to me is how many people out there are moving from the Democratic Party and declaring themselves to be Independents. If memory serves me it's something staggering...like 300,000 over the past few years. THAT should be a concern if you're a progressive because it signals that a large "chunk" of your party didn't buy into the progressive agenda and wants to go a different way.
