(Note: it would be nice if you and "Garver" gave references -- especially links. Of course, I am aware that it is easier to just make up the "results" you desire.)<quoted text>
Pretty sure he's referring to the cnn poll released today.
They story is on the drudge report.
So, under the assumption that it WAS CNN, I went to the "Drudge Report," and came up with this 9/7/2012 - 9/9/2012 CNN poll:
Obama 50%, Romney 41%, Johnson (Libertarian) 4%, Stein (Green Party) 2%,[None] 1%
So we see that independents were in fact polled. Further, we see that Obama outpolled Romney by 9%. As a PERCENTAGE of the poll results (Obama / Romney), Obama outpolled Romney by 22%(50 divided by 41).
