Independent voters will decide the election in November. OutFront's Political Strike Team brings together leading political reporters and non-partisan analysts to focus on politics for the iNation.
The record 40% of Americans who now identify as Independent represent the largest untapped market in politics – they are alienated by the unprecedented polarization and want to see Washington work again. The Political Strike Team will offer timely opinions - cutting through the predictable partisan spin. Non-partisan doesn’t mean neutral. Together, the OutFront Political Strike Team will help Independent voters make informed decisions on Election Day.

-Quite the booster club, I'd say. "A Political Strike Team." Wow-za, Wow-za, Wow-za!!!! "(C)utting through the predictable partisan spin (and yet this group still reflects that), 'Non-partisan doesn’t mean neutral.' " So, _what_ does it represent again?
What I'll be watching for in Wisconsin is the "raw" vote totals, the number of total voters. While the national media wants to consider this as a referendum on the labor/business dynamic, I'm looking to see just how many people no longer have ANY faith in the system and see no possible way forward for governance. This is the tipping point for November, I think we all agree in that, but it is only about the involvement of the electorate; that reveals the level of faith and committent to the restoration of functional governance. It's very similar to the unemployment rate: if the number goes down, the President looks good BUT if the number goes down because people have just given up all hope, well, that's not so good, is it? It looks good on paper though...
