Schoen: Dobbs ‘Formidable’

Pollster Doug Schoen, who crunched numbers for President Clinton and Mayor Bloomberg, and made a prodigious study of the independent movement, thinks Lou Dobbs, who dubbed himself “Mr. Independent” would be a “formidable” candidate for office.

In an email this morning, Schoen said, “Dobbs would be formidable wherever he runs and on whatever ballot line he chose to run on.”

Dobbs is reportedly considering a Senate run next year, either as an independent or Republican (which some people in the G.O.P. aren’t too thrilled about, according to David Halbfinger). Schoen: Dobbs ‘Formidable’
