Independents Are “Behaving Like Republicans”

Meet The Press

Democratic genius Tad Devine to Wall Street Journal, speaking truth to power.

As the Wall Street Journal points out today, independent voters, who backed Democrats in 2006 and 2008, have moved toward the GOP. Peter Wallsten and Neil King point to Rick Boucher’s race (VA-09) as an example of where independent voters have swung against the incumbent rapidly.

Key excerpt:

Nationally, independent voters, who backed Democrats in 2006 and 2008, have swung to the GOP. In the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, 52% said they would vote Republican next week. The survey found Mr. Obama, who won 52% of independents nationally in 2008, has a job-approval rating of just 40% among that group.
