Americans across the political spectrum are showing alarm over outbreaks of measles that have been attributed to the anti-vaccination movement. While respected as a formidable grassroots groundswell, anti-vaccination campaigns have come under fire for potentially leading people astray. Less and less people see leaving the option to vaccinate one's children as up to the parents.

It's interesting that Independents are more likely than members of either party to believe that the decision should not rest with the parents. I don't know of any other statistic in which Independents's opinions do not fall between those held by Democrats and Republicans. Do you have any ideas as to why this is?

This is also quite interesting to me, AJ. I have noticed that Independents in general usually have a more pronounced libertarian streak which can obviously deviate their opinions away from the Democrats, but from the GOP as well. But that's even more of a reason for surprise at the fact that they are open to taking vaccinations out of the hands of the parents.
