Independent Voters Discuss the Issues

Don Lemon's CNN panel of independents Dr. Omar H. Ali, Joe Gandelman, and Nicole Neily discuss the debt:

  • Can Independent Voters Fix Our Broken Political System? (By Conor Friedersdorf, The Atlantic) Roughly 100 people showed up at Powell's Books in Portland, Oregon, Monday evening to hear the editors of Reason magazine, Matt Welch and Nick Gillespie, talk about their new book, The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong With America.
  • South Carolina Democrats Attack Gov. Haley Over 2001 Claim She is 'White' (Saul Relative, Yahoo! Contributor Network) It is just such petty incidents or non-issues that have caused a general outpouring of overall exasperation among the American electorate. It is why -- albeit one of the many small "whys" -- many voters have aligned themselves with neither party over the past couple decades.
  • Millennial Independents to Washington: You do not reflect our interests (by Tina Korbe, Hot Air) Among independent voters aged 18 to 29, 55 percent agree that if taxes on business profits were reduced, companies would be more likely to hire. That’s according to a poll recently commissioned by Generation Opportunity, a nonprofit, non-partisan organization that seeks to engage young adults in a discussion about the immediate and long-term economic challenges that face the nation.
