GOP Strategist: Primary Scaring ‘The Hell Out Of’ Independent Voters

Republican strategist Mike Murphy said Sunday on NBC’s Meet The Press that the primary is alienating independent voters and that the establishment is eager to pick a nominee and move on to the general election.

After Virginia, Murphy predicted, Romney will “be in a pretty commanding place in the nomination. And on behalf of the Republican establishment, it’s about damn time. We want this thing to get over, because we see those independent voters eroding as we scare the hell out of them with the histrionics of our primary.”
