Quote: "As the campaign moves to New Hampshire and its 373,000 undeclared (independent) voters, the conventional wisdom is that only Obama will vie for the undeclared voters with John McCain. Undeclared voters in New Hampshire, representing 44% of all registered voters in the state, are not a monolithic block. It is hard to imagine, for example, anti-war undeclared voters even considering McCain.
The Obama myth fueled by the flawed Register poll sample damages John Edwards because Edwards gains significant strength from middle-aged independents. Of all the Democrats, Edwards is more apt to compete with McCain for undeclared voters and those undeclared voters could make Edwards very competitive with Obama and Clinton in New Hampshire."
