In my opinion, the rise of independents. Lots and lots of citizens no longer see themselves attached to any single ideology. They’re now the biggest single demographic, and they’re growing.
Dippers will claim it means they are most popular, but that’s superficial and ultimately false. The Cons and Libs are simply the most familiar choices: the new independents are looking for newer choices. The Occupiers, Tea Party and non-voters are all part of this: they are turning away from the traditional alignments.
I think something big is happening, here. What do you think?
