Independents' Day

If next November 8 is Independents' Day in the country, the Democrats could be in serious trouble. John Halpin explains at The Liberal Patriot.
"American politics is increasingly determined by the actions and attitudes of Independents. Partisans on both sides of the aisle reliably align their voting habits, beliefs, and leader evaluations with their respective parties. Democrats mostly like if not love Joe Biden and his agenda, and Republicans mostly hate Joe Biden and his agenda. Not surprising.
One of the most important trends for political analysts then is how Independents are tracking: are they lined up more with Democrats and their positions, or more with Republicans? On this front, President Biden is tanking—badly.
Independents’ views of Biden, and on the economy and Covid-related policies, are much more aligned with Republicans than Democrats, albeit not as intensely. This public image deficiency with Independents should occupy the minds of Democrats and the White House. If Biden’s image does not improve with these important voters over the next few months, Democrats can expect serious losses in congressional elections this fall."
