New Poll: Independent Voters Agree With Conservative Policies on 37 of 40 Major Issues

Broke: The Plan to Restore Our Trust, Truth and Treasure

This poll doesn't bode well for Democrats in 2012.
(Weekly Standard)- If the House were composed solely of independents, it would pass the same conservative legislation as Republicans on Obamacare, the individual mandate, purchasing health insurance across state lines, spending, offshore oil drilling, and Social Security reform...
...The Resurgent Republic analysis found that independents favored conservative policies on 37 of 40 major issues. Only on three education issues – teacher certification, aid to private schools, and merit pay – were independents in the liberal camp, though the polling was mixed on merit pay. The most recent Resurgent Republic poll found them siding narrowly with conservatives on basing teacher pay partly on student performance.
