Pitney on Obama and Independent Voters

The Christian Science Monitor recently ran an article on the subject of independent voters and the 2008 election. The article analyzes the challenges and advantages each candidate has in the race. Pitney addresses Obama’s current 4% lead in national polls:

The narrowness of his lead “is a sign that the public isn’t quite comfortable with Obama yet,” says John Pitney, a political scientist at Claremont McKenna College in California. “He’s somebody new on the scene, and people aren’t quite ready to give him the keys to the war room.”
