Who WILL the "independents" go for? Give me a name.
Some will obviously go for BHO. Don’t underestimate the degree to which the MSM is in the tank for him or their influence. Starting in Sept 2012, they will pull out ALL the stops to get him reelected. Not sure if a majority will be fooled, but enough might be—especially the women. And that goes for college kids/Twenty somethings too. A lot of independents might also stay home or vote third party as a “pox on all your houses” protest.
Unlike many here, I think that BHO will be very hard to beat despite his poor performance. Its critical that we don’t nominate someone with an existing handicap among voters or someone who will self destruct (ala, McCain).
