This really could be very interesting. As Obama's numbers dwindle, everyone watchs the Republicans who started about 7 strong and united, finally started getting nasty. Cain dropped out, and a few others probably should, so the field narrows down. The country is in no mood for nonsence anymore. The Congress approval is even less than Obama's. As the republicans narrow down, the top runners are not slam dunks. Not since Ross Perot has an indepentant been so strong. Trump may be a much stonger indpendant than Ross was. plus the mood of the country right now, and if the republican nomine is not that appealing. Donald Trump is a strong possibilty, to do well as an independant. People could see him as a sucessful big businessman capable of pulling us out of economic problems, and producing jobs. The mood of the country is sick and tired of both parties, so an independant could have a real strong run. Could be very interesting, depending on who the nominee is, and who they pick to run as VP.
If Obama runs with Biden, and either Romney or Ron Paul is nominated, the independant team could be on equal ground, and not a mere small percentage. Imagine Trump who just told the republicans to shove it, teamed up with Joe Lieberman who told the Democrats to take a hike, last year. Independant team of strong business + strong defence and foreign policy, could really win the next election.

NEW YORK (AP) — Billionaire businessman Donald Trump has changed his voter registration in New York state from Republican to unaffiliated.
A spokesman for Trump says the businessman and television host changed his affiliation to preserve his option to seek the presidency in 2012.
Special Counsel Michael Cohen said Friday that Trump could enter the race if Republicans fail to nominate a candidate who can defeat President Barack Obama.
He said Trump probably would use his substantial wealth to even the playing field with Obama's re-election campaign.
Cohen said Trump's commitment to hosting TV's "The Apprentice" will keep him from doing anything until May, when the show's season wraps up.
He said Trump filed his voter registration paperwork Thursday.
