Leftover (but important) link from Friday: partisan independents. The Wash. Post says the majority of independents sway left or right. That seems to make sense; I know that I pride myself on being an independent, but will vote Democrat 99% of the time. I guess what I really value is independence from the institution of the Democratic Party, with all its flaws, failings, and hatred of people and ideas I love on the right. But I'll still vote for candidates I more often agree with. What do you think, is that a common phenomenon among independents?
