Joe Scarborough: Republicans Going ‘Mad’ Over Winning Independents, Yet Still Losing

On Monday, the Morning Joe panel took a moment to discuss the role Independent voters are playing in this election and, in particular, what this may mean for Mitt Romney.

“Every Republican I’ve talked to that knows how to run campaigns, they say ‘If you win Independents by 5 or 6 points, you win Ohio,'” host Joe Scarborough explained. “In every single race. And yet they’re up in a lot of polls by double digits among Independents and they’re losing Ohio. This is what’s driving Republicans mad — that they see this huge win among Independents, but they’re still losing.”

Mark Halperin ventured that a lot of this may have to do with the fact that more people seem to think — regardless of whom they’ll vote for — that Obama will win, and no one, by and large, is keen on voting for the losing candidate.
