Pew Survey Bad News For Democrats

Posted in Government and Politics by TeeJaw on Monday, April 19, 2010, 12: 36 PM

A new Pew Research Poll has Democrats losing Independents. This is astounding because Independents have often cut to the Democrats by a 2/3 or more margin. I’ve always thought that people who register as Independent are really Democrats who want to feel chic or are just too ashamed to admit to being a Democrat.

“The times, they’re a changin’.” At least for now.

The intensity is with those Independents who are most dissatisfied with Government, and they are the ones most likely to vote. Polls that count likely voters, as opposed to all adults or registered voters, more accurately predict the outcome of elections, (well, duh).

Independents most likely to vote favor Republicans by 66% to 13%. Cool.

Some say Democrat Pols are not listening. Way cool.
