Item: Independent Idaho in for poll surprise: Largest bloc must decide between GOP, Democrat/Betsy Russell, SR
More Info: Say you’re an Idaho voter who wants to cast a ballot in next year’s primary election for Sarah Palin for president, or Mike Huckabee, or Mitt Romney. In a state that’s never had party registration, you could be in for a surprise at the polls, where voters will be required to become party members – or they might not get to vote in anything but nonpartisan judges’ races. “Being an independent, you don’t like that too well,” said Mitch Campbell, a Twin Falls businessman who heads the American Independent Movement of Idaho.
Question: Do you consider yourself to be a Republican, Democrat, Independent, Libertarian, Constitutionalist, or something else?
