Imagine an American Political System That Includes Independents


INDEPENDENT VOTERS
  • Brian Dickerson: From Lansing to D.C., the middle is being marginalized (Detroit Free Press) Imagine an America where the typical citizen feels little allegiance to either political party but recognizes that each has some worthwhile ideas for reigniting economic growth and shrinking the nation's debt.
  • Poll: Obama Is Losing Independents (By Danny Yadron, Wall Street Journal/Washington Wire) The poll comes as GOP presidential candidates gather in Ames, Iowa, Thursday night for their second major debate. A survey of Hawkeye State voters released Wednesday shows only 32%  of independents approve of Mr. Obama’s job performance, while 61% disapprove. American Action Network, a conservative campaign group, commissioned the poll.
