Poll: Indies siding with protesters

From NBC's Mark Murray
A new USA Today/Gallup poll taken yesterday shows that independents, by a 2-to-1 margin, are siding with the town-hall protesters in the debate over health care.

"In a survey of 1,000 adults ... 34% say the sometimes heated protests at sessions held by members of Congress have made them more sympathetic to the protesters' views; 21% say they are less sympathetic. Independents by 2-1, 35%-16%, say they are more sympathetic to the protesters now."
