Independent voters will choose the next president (Townhall.com) February 29, 2012

Independent voters elected President Obama in 2008, and they will decide his reelection in 2012.  But a great deal has changed in 4 years.

A recent poll shows Obama’s support among independents is down to 31 percent, from the 52 percent he carried in ’08.  And a study shows that in 8 key battleground states, registration among independents is growing by 3-4 percent, so they will be important deciders. 

Nearly half of independents say they haven’t made up their minds about Mitt Romney. But if the Republican race and its negative attack ads go on much longer, and then Obama spends heavily defining Romney, it will be tough.

Many independents are disgusted with both parties, so they’re difficult to predict. But in a year of negative campaigning, the effort to reach them will be both ugly and enormously important.
