Growth of independents could play a major role

The editorial writers at The Oklahoman seem to think that voters registered as independent could play a significant role in the race for the next governor:
Independents are fiscally conservative but socially progressive, with a strong libertarian bent. That spells trouble for the Obama administration.

It could also spell victory for the gubernatorial candidate who can win over this bloc.
I fervently hope that the Reclaim Oklahoma/Birch Society crowd continues to do everything it can to alienate voters here. The more the Religious Right undermines its own credibility, the more opportunity it creates for more rational candidates.
