"Independent voting: The Republican base is fired up and ready to go. The Democratic base, not so much. Who’s left for Democrats to court? Independents. But right now the slippery swing voters are lining up behind the GOP, by double-digit margins as large as 18 points in recent polling. The health care bill is just one of a litany of items on the Democratic agenda that Republicans say has placed the party in power out of touch with an electorate more worried about nearly 10 percent unemployment and a ballooning budget deficit."
Nothing surprising there. These kinds of poll numbers among Independents have remained fairly steady since the August of Discontent (no coincidence there). Much of the dem rhetoric this week has been to the effect that, "Things will all be better by November -- They'll forget all about health care by then." Wrong guess, dems.
Let's see, your widespread unpopularity with Independents has been a constant now for, what, at least 7-8 months? But it's suddenly going to drastically improve over the next 7 months as you try to ram-rod Cap'n Trade and other massive far left legislation right down our throats? I will give you dems credit for one thing: You are at least consistent in your incessant delusional thought.
