Fence-sitters may decide next president

May 25, 2008

America’s fence-sitters (my term of endearment for independents), may have a lot to say on the November 4, presidential election.  Recent Gallup and Pew polls give Obama only the slightest edge currently among the fence-sitters.

According to Newsday, independent voters will make up between one fifth and one third of the electorate in each state.

As the campaign season continues, it wil be interesting to see how the candidates approach this important group.

It just may come down to popularity, which would have to give the charismatic Obama a huge edge.
