What Is Wrong With This Picture?

Americans are fed up with their government.  So much so, 43% identified themselves as independent, according to a 2014 Gallup Poll.

This is bad news, folks.  As the 43% is way more than those identified with either major party (i.e. 30% Democrat and 26% Republican).

What is wrong with this picture?

Well, for one, the table is set by the two major parties.  Candidates for the November general election come from the state primaries. And according to the Independent Voter Project, out of the 50 states in the U.S., 47 hold partisan primaries (i.e. only Party members may vote).

So, the independents don’t get a seat at the table at these primaries.  And they are the majority. Go figures.

    This information makes Bloomberg entering the race as an independent even more interesting.
