Only 10% of Ohio voters are independent ???
That is what the U of Cincy said.
48 percent said they were Democrats, 42 percent Republicans and 10 percent independent.
2008 Ohio Exit polls.
I call this Poll BS.
From the link:
The poll also unearthed few undecided voters and few true independents -- those not leaning toward one party or the other. Of the randomly selected participants, 48 percent said they were Democrats, 42 percent Republicans and 10 percent independent. Rademacher said the margin between Democratic and Republican respondents is typically between 5 points either way.
This seems to say that if an independent claims to lean either R or D, then they are counted as R or D.
