As was discovered in 2000, 2002, and 2004 the percent of truly Independent voters is a mere 5-7% . . . Just as it was in 2004, the 2006 election will be determined by the effectiveness of the Republican and Democrat 'Get Out the Vote' (GOTV) efforts!
I suspect you are exactly right, and don't share the general glee around here at the Lamont/Lieberman Primary. A LOT of people turned out for what was, after all, just a Primary.

Yes, but the problem is with the ersatz independent, who say they are independent, but vote GOP usually. Not this time, at this time.
