From the Daily Star, Independents may tip congressional races, by Tom Grace, Cooperstown News Bureau:
"The New York Times released a poll Thursday that indicates independent voters are firmly in the Democratic camp this time. "Fifty percent of independent voters, a closely watched segment of the electorate in such polarized times, said they intended to vote for the Democratic candidate, versus 23 who said they would vote for a Republican," the Times reported...."
Well, this theory might hold water somewhere, but here on earth, we have fusion voting in New York, which the New York Times is alergic to--the very thought of voters going outside the two parties gives them the heebie-jeebies.... Independent voters have the option of voting for the Democratic candidate for governor Eliot Spitzer on the Independence Party line Column C on the ballot--that's a choice that all voters will have tomorrow. -NH
