1. If you look at the most recent polls...

 

everything since January is Democrats average 37 to Independents Average 27. Independents are now losing ground...

2. Says it was updated 8 days ago, and the latest data on the chart is Feb 11.

3. Yes...now look how far back that goes...this is a combined result...

 

I did the numbers through January and February....results: Democrats 37% Independents 27%

That chart is based on the table beneath it...which is where I got my numbers...

6. The chart goes back to 2008, and independents have been leading since 2009, so I think

 

there's something wrong with your numbers.

4. I think the survey could be taken many ways.

Are the self-classified Independents truly a third way group, or are many of them minimal information people who pay very little attention to things until 30 days before an election?

Are the Independents regular voters or Presidential election voters only?

Do some Tea Party people count themselves as Independents because for them the GOP is too liberal?
