-- -- -- The latest poll shows President Obama slipping among independent voters he now trails Mitt Romney.
The poll from investors business daily shows Romney with a 43.
43% of the independent vote it's 36%.
About -- to the president.
-- -- remains number -- on the issues let's.
-- on March from a Dewey square group joins us now from Boston.
-- and I want you to address the independents in this movement to Mitt Romney by that group of people.
I believe that that the independence they want private enterprise to be invigorate.
They want a private enterprise solution to the Malays of our economy and president Obama's not giving it to him is giving them up a public sector statements.
And I don't like it and I don't think it Cooper would independents would that economic policy.
Independent voters are indicate key swing group here that will determine the election.
And the fact that Romney has the -- with them yet Obama still -- over -- -- this poll tells you a lot.
My experience with the independent voters especially in a presidential race and especially this -- they care more about the deficit than anything else that's the thing that really that really matters to them.
And I think the more they get to realize Mitt Romney's history.
In creating deficits as governor Massachusetts in in the private sector they're gonna have a very tough -- between -- -- Obama -- in -- ground.
A tough choice act when Barack go back president Barack Obama has increased our national debt by five trillion dollars the only president ever to -- -- close to that kind of debt accumulation.
You can't put that debt -- -- of Obama at -- -- the debt record of Mitt Romney governor of Massachusetts.
He should -- can do attitude still independent voters -- will only make that absolutely.
But here's the facts when governor when Romney was governor of Massachusetts we have the highest debt in the country he did people a -- buying groceries -- a credit card with double digit interest rates and only pay the monthly minimum.
That's what he did earlier governor Massachusetts that the fat and so little that's yeah it is financially OK I accidentally let the.
Just a lot of -- -- -- if you really think that independent voters will go sudden that the will go for Barack Obama the five trillion dollar man.
Vs Mitt Romney governor of Massachusetts on high debt as I've said there gonna I don't tough new trial after -- what I keep hearing.
If -- that President Obama is site ten points down amongst any group of voters or about overall by mid summer.
He will reach out to Hillary Clinton and make him a make a rather than a video vice president.
I know that you are right Clinton Issa you would like this country.
I'll love Hillary Clinton I don't see it happening basically it is noted that would like you wouldn't you.
I think you'll see Hillary Clinton 2016 running for the top of the -- and you would like it -- -- it that if he went I don't fault it's not gonna have a Clinton not gonna happen like not witness that you would like not gonna happen because I didn't vote for president not for vice President Obama Jamie and and Dan Quayle as exhibit a as a -- My has moved the needle way out that to the left and he's losing with a focus if you put Hillary Clinton in the -- thought he would move back to percent to.
And he would win and you would love it.
At it -- -- the fact is nobody votes for president based and vice president period on equipment doesn't matter who it is just on that would never does not yep that's -- Now I know refused to say whether you whether or not you would like to see Hillary as the vice presidential candidate you insolvent that would.
What -- because it's not as a -- point is that gonna happen but I'll betcha she runs and 26 Spain UB disloyal to it to the Democrat party if you said yeah.
See now you know look I think I think Obama and Romney will do anything necessary to win.
But winning does not involve picking a vice president because people don't vote for president based -- vice president just doesn't happen you know I totally disagree with you on both issues -- debt and Hillary.
I -- I'm -- talking and there is talking it's.
Yeah -- -- here today so that's good.
-- -- -- -- look up -- They are both wrong because you're looking at Allentown where it's not the debt number if the unemployment number real unemployment is at 15%.
That's what people are gonna vote on the basis for they're gonna reject Obama and their is that Romney and aren't you glad you brought that Jerry into the conversation -- At any day I'm happy to take -- both fun and wish that we're true but it's not the case and independents overwhelmingly care about the deficit more they always have I know it sounds.
Counter intuitive but if you look at the polling that's what you say.
All right last word went to you -- on -- thanks for joining us -- irrespective.
