Why Trump Will Win Independents in 2020

David Catron, The American Spectator

Independents see themselves as reasonable people who reject what they perceive as extremism in one or both of the two major parties. Most Democratic positions are now seen as radical by these voters. Gallup reports that 42 percent of Americans identify as political independents, while 29 percent say they are Democrats and 27 percent call themselves Republicans.

Conservatives Are Winning the Shutdown Fight

The failure to actually fight for their platform or campaign on conservative principles is why millions of core GOP voters stayed home in 2012.
