77. Just as a majority didn't vote for Obama in 2012.

Obama lost the "independent" vote in nearly every swing state and lost it by double digits in the crucial state of Ohio. Yet he won Ohio and won re-election in a landslide.

Given how many radical right wingers self-identify as "independent," this is hardly surprising.

Millions of independents will vote for Clinton. Millions will vote for the Republican candidate. Millions won't vote for either. That's just the way it is.
