New Hampshire, the first state to hold a primary with independent voters, had the most articles about independent voters. Michigan and Souther Carolina both hold open primaries and have a high number of articles. Massachusetts covered independent voters due its proximity to New Hampshire and independent voters voting in its own state on Super Tuesday.

Most of the states on the chart are the ones that allow independent voters to vote, meaning that the local media is covering their own issues. There are, however, states on the chart that did not hold primaries between January 3 and March 6, 2012. For example, Texas, California and Pennsylvania are not holding primaries until later in April, May and even June. This shows the power, focus and national attention that independent voters can get and have received, both in and out of their designated states.
