The new ABC News / Washington Post poll shows President Obama with a 49%-48% lead over Mitt Romney among likely voters. One major problem — the poll only included 23% Republicans in its sample compared to 33% Democrat and 37% independent.
Even during the Democratic wave of 2008, GOP turnout in Illinois was 28% and in California it was 30%. Again, anyone who thinks only 23% of voters in America consider themselves to be Republicans is either a.) stupid; b.) high; c.) incredibly biased or d.) all of the above.
So, how is Romney doing among independents in this poll? He’s thrashing Obama 54%-43%.
