Will crossover voters decide the 2008 election?

In a nice piece for Newsweek, Andrew Romano shows that neither “Obamacans” or “McCainocrats” will be a significant factor in the 2008 Presidential election:
In fact, registered Democrats and Republicans who cross over to support a candidate from the other party never matter. There will always be some, and they usually cancel each other out. When they don’t it’s usually just an indicator of a broader landslide. It’s always the independent voters that decide the election.
