Contrary to popular misconception, while there are only two distinct and formidible parties in these United States of America, more people are "Independents" than belong to either party: "According to the Gallup polling firm, the identity that people choose most often is actually "independent" — not Democratic or Republican. In 2017, 42% of Americans chose this label" (Source). "However, three-quarters of these "independents" admit, when asked, that they lean toward favoring the Democratic or Republican Party."Becuase the mainstream media, the elected representatives to congress and the senators all decree opposite to what the Constitution says, and the masses blindly "trust" them, just like the masses that say "just do what the police officer says, he's the law" or "show some respect to the police officer, he's got a tough job and just wants to go home at night."
Thus, 42% x (1-75%) = 10.5%. As the article well notes: "Only about 10% of Americans are what we call "pure independents" — that is, people who identify as independents and claim not to favor either of the two major parties."
Even so, while Independents may indeed lean towards one party or the other, most of them I've met are more adept than average in looking at matters objectively. That's one of the reasons they register as independents in the first place.
Regardless, there are more independents than there are people who belong to either party, and that's saying something.
The question is, "What does that say?"
I think it says roughly two-thirds of independents and one-third of party members do not just "blindly 'trust' them" (MM, Reps, Sens).
Crunch the numbers and that comes to about 47% of Americans who aren't as trusting as you claim the masses to be.
The problem is, that means 53% of them are, and yes, that's indeed a problem!
The Replies section on FoxNews (understandably) and Yahoo News (surprisingly) are strongly slanted against AOC. This tells me far more people are awake than are still HUA.This is why people don't know because they don't care. If they knew, would there be any support for AOC??? no. not at all. but they LOOOVE the idea of socialism. They love the idea of anything that "sounds good" ignorantly missing the fact that the only reason they are in position to contemplate these ideas is due to our Constitutional Republic.
