Independents Fleeing en masse from Obama

Barack Obama has recently been flip-flopping on many of the issues, hoping to fool middle-of-the-road voters into believing he is actually a Centrist who, all his life, was simply disguising himself as an extreme Left-Wing Liberal.

But has all this waffling paid off for him?

According to a Reuters/Zogby poll released on Wednesday, not only hasn't it paid off for Obama, it seems to have backfired on him.

Obama's 22-point advantage in June among independents, a critical voting bloc that could swing either way in the November election, shrunk to 3 points during a month in which the candidates battled on the economy and Obama was accused of shifting to the center on several issues.
Apparently, many of these "so called" Independents prefer the old Obama - the one who was dubbed "The most Liberal Senator in 2007", - over the new Obama.

So what does this mean for Obama?

It means he better stop this ridiculous dissemblance immediately and get back to being the extreme Left-Wing politician he really is, or he'll lose the support of all those independent voters who, for some inexplicable reason, long to see another Jimmy Carter-like President in the Oval Office.
