Surge in Voters Calling Themselves 'Independent' Under Obama

Conservatives are holding their own, while the ranks of independents have skyrocketed since November's presidential election, the latest Pew Research Center poll shows.

The poll of 3,013 adults from March 31 to April 21 found that there had been "no consistent movement away from conservatism, nor a shift toward liberalism" since the election.

Republican losses are slowing, the poll found, while Democrats have begun losing ground too. And independent and unaffiliated voters are approaching record highs.

The implications for the president, Congress and the political parties in the next election could be profound. Among the results:

Thirty-nine percent of adults now call themselves independent in Pew's poll of party identification and values. When it comes to all things Washington, independents are "more skittish than they were two years ago about expanding the social safety net and are reluctant backers of greater government involvement in the private sector," the poll said.

People identifying themselves as Democrats have slipped from 39 percent in December to 33 percent now.

People identifying themselves as Republicans have fallen from 26 percent to 22 percent, their lowest level in 25 years, according to Pew.

However, among Republicans, 66 percent call themselves conservative, up from 60 percent in 2,000.

Overall, independent voters lean Democratic. That is typical for the Pew poll, though it also shows conservatism is rising among ( independent), unaffiliated voters: 33 percent say they are conservative, up from 28 percent in 2007 and 26 percent in 2005.

Both party's have merged to such an extent that's it's almost impossible to distinguish the difference .They have become like whores but once they are safe in office they function only for themselves .

One sign of power that they all look for is the ability to ignore the wishes of those who have put them into office .If they can do that and still be reelected they have arrived !

If the people don't keep an eye on these elected people we end up with people like Barney Farnks or Chris Dodd,Working for themselves or their partys interests but not ours .

Their's is the 'good' life doing what they want and ignoring those who voted for them .They compromise their constituents political ideals at the drop of the hat and dare not go against their party's leadership fearing a loss of a plum committee appointment .

We as a voting populous should tighten the reigns of recall we have on these villians,They should be forced to enter into a compact to do their constituents collective wills or face immediate recall !The voting public has for too long trusted there politicians that they vote into office.

We need to establish much tighter controls on these elected critters and 'reel them in ' when need be !

Power changes hands, people feel like they need a change. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss....The pendulum moves back and forth. Do you really believe this is it for both the Republican Party and Conservatives?

If the conservatives are in a death spiral I assure you it will be a hollow victory for liberals. We are what drives the economy.

Please don't try to debate logic with a liberal. You'll end up with a headache. As for the topic at hand, I think this whole "Independent" voter thing is a misnomer. I know of many registered independents and when I asked them who they voted for in the last election, the names they gave me were all Democrats. And how many "independents" last election said they supported Obama? To me, it is a ploy to make the Democrats look stronger with moderates. As for the GOP, they are not finished. Rest assured, if they held mid-term elections today the Republicans would gain significant ground to the point of regaining control but that's today. The Dems have a whole calendar year and a half. The real trouble is that there isn't anywhere for Conservatives to turn to right now. The GOP is too busy trying to be moderates and the Libertarian Party is too weak and fractured.

Don't count on it Logans Grand Poppie .California is in revolt and the rest of the country is angry over being screwed by your Progressive Congress.Now the terminator wants to eliminate all wellfare .The Ninth Circuit will have a field day with that one !That pest h0ole of a state you live in is totally screwed when the new taxes go through the roof .When those mindless fools who voted your boy into office finally get their collective heads out of their rear ends and notice America is in ruins they will take revenge of the party that screwed them, the Progressives/Socialists !

Some of these people who were about to retire will have to work ten to twenty more years because of Barney Franks and Dodd.Your incompetent minority president is doing a great job of destroying America Don't Cha Think and by the time your grandson Logan is ready to retire he will be living in a doorway somewhere !
