"Right now this election is about independents — independents and the economy,’’ said pollster Tom Eldon. "Obama is clearly establishing himself as the candidate of the independents.’’
At a time when economic anxiety trumps all issues in Florida, about half of the voters surveyed — and almost 6 in 10 independents — said Obama has a better plan to improve the economy, while one in three voters say McCain does. Forty-five percent said Obama has shown the most leadership on the economy, and 34 percent said McCain.
“The predominant color in Florida right now is neither blue nor red, it’s green,” said pollster Kellyanne Conway. “The financial concerns, money concerns, dominate voters’ calculus.’’
Conway, who’s company works mostly with Republicans, questioned the effectiveness of McCain’s recent campaign strategy.
"Trying to connect Barack Obama to Bill Ayers, rather than connect McCain to the average voter in the economy has ... been dubious,’’ she said, referring to the 1960s radical Obama knows.
