Pictures of devastation continue to pour in from across the Northeast. With much of the damage in the country’s largest media market, the plight of New Yorkers and others affected by the storm is sure to dominate the news cycle for weeks — if not months. But could the effects of the hurricane extend beyond the flood zones and power grids?  Could it decide a presidency?

Three independent voters far away from the battered beaches of New York and New Jersey weigh in. Julia Pfaff is an adjunct professor at George Mason University in Virginia. John Rampe is president of Torque Transmission Company in Ohio.

Seeing Governor Christy & the President working together reenforces my decision to vote for the President! He walked into a financial Sandy and handled it and he is now doing the same with this disaster!
