Mitt Romney has opened up a double-digit lead over President Barack Obama among Independent voters. Does this mean most Americans don't want to "move forward" to commie-socialist "Progressivism?"
GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney has opened up a double-digit lead over President Barack Obama among independent voters.
A Politico/George Washington University poll has Romney with a razor-thin lead over Obama among all likely voters, 48 percent to 47 percent. A similar poll in February had Obama ahead by 9 percentage points.
But among voters who identified themselves as independents, Romney garnered 48 percent of the vote to Obama’s 38 percent.
Romney also has a 6-point lead among respondents who said they are “extremely likely” to vote in November.
In other good news for Republicans, the survey found that the GOP has taken a 45 percent to 43 percent lead on the generic congressional ballot, and 65 percent of respondents believe Republicans will continue to control the House after the election.
Democratic pollster Celinda Lake, who helped conduct the poll, said: “There are no fissures on either side, but you have the Democrats less enthusiastic than the Republicans.”
I myself am an Independent who in 2008 made the mistake of writing in for Ron Paul, thereby inadvertently helping Obama get elected. The only difference between a wise man and a fool is that a fool doesn't learn from his mistakes. This time I will be voting for Romney.
Also, I'm no fan of illegal aliens, so both Obama and Paul are not options. See:
