Are Political Parties on the Way Out? Poll Says 42% of Americans Are Independents
Are political parties on their way out? A new Gallup poll reveals that 42 percent of Americans identify themselves as Independents, while 31 percent say they’re Democrats and 25 percent say they identify as Republicans.
Dana Perino said she thinks the extremities on both sides are turning people off to the two parties.
“It’s safer to say ‘I’m an Independent right now, and I’ll figure it out in the next couple of years,’” Eric Bolling remarked.
