Are Ron Paul Followers Independents?

An LA Times writeup explains the dynamics of the Maine delegate division. However, there is a very strange quote near the end of the article.

"I think he's [Romney] being very careful because he knows how important the Ron Paul voters are — they obviously represent a very different dynamic," said Mike Dennehy, a former top aide to Republican John McCain's 2008 campaign. "They are the most passionate and the most frustrated of any voters heading to the polls. And many of them are independents."

Excuse me? Since when are Ron Paul supporters independents? Does he mean independent from the normal Republican followers? Paul supporters are no where near the common independents. He's clearly trying to redefine them in his statement.
