The New Majority it here.
The Old way of thinking about politics is dead. In many state we are finding that the Independent or Unaffiliated Voter are now the Majority of registered voters. Take Ohio where approximately 70% of the registered voters are Independents.
According to the Colorado Secretary of State, as of September 2022, there are almost as many Unaffiliated Voters (UAF) as both the Democrats and Republicans combined!
DEM 1,045,459 - REP 935,045 - UAF 1,710,800 - GRN 8,559 -LBR 40,567 -UNI 3,282 Total 3,759,999
This means that the old trope of "She'll Split the Vote" no longer applies. If the Independent voter is the majority, we can disregard both parties and their mantras of "Unity" and "Vote Splitting" and vote for who we believe best represents our views and will fight for them in the office once elected. The two party system has been exposed as the UniParty and We the People are free to vote our conscious.
Traditionally it has been believed that the Independent voter is a centrist. Both parties think they need to pander to the Centrist to gain their vote. However this line of thinking is no longer correct either. The UAF/Independent Voter these days are from across the spectrum including both ends. People are just disillusioned by the corruption in both parties and are looking for a new type of candidate. We are looking for honesty. We are looking for average people who represent us and are not career politicians bought out by the Elites who are trying to drag this Land of the Free into a Global "New World Order". Not this time. Vote your conscious and stop listening to the Parties.
