“The people who appear to be potentially open to non-ideological politics is the roughly 10 percent of voters who are true moderates. That amounts to maybe 7 percent of the American public. Most ‘independents’ vote along party lines but pretend to themselves and/or their friends that they are something other than garden variety Democrats or Republicans.“
This one too.
There have been studies...and in these studies, it has been shown that no party preference does in fact have preferences. You're not human if you don't have preferences
California will vote Obama, it's a given. And my home state of Idaho will vote Romney. As a part time visitor and property owner in California(who plans to vacate the state permanently in 18 months)can any of the Obama voters on this site tell me why you would vote this man back in for another 4 years of economic disaster? And don't tell me it is Bush's fault or that Romney is an evil rich man. I don't care if you like either man. What really baffles me is how you can VOTE for a proven failure. At least some of the African American pastors in this country are telling their folks to stay home and not vote at all, given Obama's gay marriage support. The numbers don't lie, this is the worst president in US history!
As long as the two parties dominate, it doesn't matter how many "independents" there are. Like Leaperman said; if you're registered independent and you're not voting independent, you're either a democrat or a republican NOT an independent.
