  •  The remark "fickle independents" (0+ / 0-)

    is a little ... derogatory, I think.

    Independents, as well as a good number of Democrats and the remaining few intelligent Republicans, are hunting everywhere for someone to represent the people.

    If the politicians in power will not represent the people, then they'll vote for those running against those in power.

    IMHO, it has relatively little to do with being "fickle" as it does with the on-going search for politicians to take up the cause of regular working (and non-working in this depression) people.

    Democrats' surest way to stay in power would be to stop their brown-nosing of banks and Wall Street financial firms, capitulating to Republican idiots, and stand up and fight for the working people.

    The lack of that leads to these swings which have been going on for the last 5 years (since 2006 election).  The swings will very likely continue.

    Democrats would have been in a world of trouble if Republicans had swept into office with a huge economic rescue plan and jobs programs for the nation.  But instead, they are captivated by idiotic teabagger BS which is wholly manufactured to serve the wealthy.

    "It's the Economy, stupid!" was never more true. The first party to stop these austerity measures and provide jobs will be the party that stops the biannual swings in the polls.

    Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better. -- Harry S Truman
