re: #211 Rightwingconspirator

A chart I saw recently showed more indy voters than either party. A large segment has stepped away from a party, but had no where to switch to. A huge swing vote could precede a big shift. I wonder if this is what a new party scenario starts like.

I’m going to guess no - because I don’t know what a third party would stand for. I doubt doubt the chart or that a large segment has stepped away from the parties - for example, who is really in love with the Democratic Party these days. But I think those indy voters don’t have a clear idea of what they want. If there was some tangible thing that a lot of people clearly wanted, the market would decide, so to speak. I’d say those indy voters don’t like the games and deals and greed that are an inevitable part of the system or any system.
