Welcome to the forum, Ron. I certainly hope you return.
I do agree with you to certain extent. Independents can be wishywashy, but it's my opinion that these so called independents are pretty much indifferent to elections until late in the game. They don't watch political news constantly like so many involved people do. This can be problem b/c I bet they more than likely just tune in to CNN or say the alphabet newscasts and considering our liberal MSM are cheerleaders, short of wearing the short skirts, it does not bode well for us on the Right. Now how that could possibly change, I don't know. Only way I do see a change is if new media continues to rise and organizations like Breitbart.com are considered news sources. And as a footnote, i believe that aforementioned org. will one day meet that goal.
