Some sort of disconnect here with indies breaking 38/57 against Obama but the generic favoring Dems on a RV model by 6?

Ahhh, the quality of internet polling....

Well, it's an indication that some respondents might disapprove of Obama, but like some other Democrat instead. Sort of like how most Republicans didn't like George Bush, but still voted for some other GOP Senate candidate.

It's perfectly possible to dislike Obama and at the same believe that Republicans suck even more than Democrats.
