POLL: Survey of Independent Voters in Battleground States
The number of Americans identifying as Independents has reached historic levels, and wooing them will be crucial to victory for either party in 2012. In order to better understand this pivotal group, we worked with Global Strategy Group to conduct a poll of Independents in battleground states, and the results offer a clear picture of who among them are truly swing voters, as well as outlining a path to reach them.
Poll by Global Strategy Group for Third Way of 1000 self-identified Independent likely voters who voted in the 2008 Presidential election in 12 swing states: CO, FL, IA, MI, NC, NH, NM, NV, OH, PA, VA, and WI. Fielded March 8-18th, 2012. Margin of Error +/- 3.1% for Independents, +/- 5.1 for Swing Independents.
