The Indie’s are going Republican this time it seems…..

Independent Voters Favor Republicans

A new Pew Research survey finds that for the third national election in a row, independent voters may be poised to vote out the party in power.

Republicans holds a significant edge in preferences for the upcoming congressional election among likely voters, in large part because political independents now favor Republican candidates by about as large a margin as they backed Barack Obama in 2008 and congressional Democratic candidates four years ago.

The survey finds that 50% of likely voters say they will vote for the Republican in their district, while 43% favor the Democratic candidate. Republican and Democratic voters overwhelmingly support their party’s candidates. The GOP’s advantage comes as a result of their 49% to 36% lead among independent and other non-partisan voters who are likely to vote in November.
