The latest Gallup poll found that a record number of Americans, about 42 percent, identify as Independents. Republican identification fell to 25 percent, and 31 percent of people surveyed identified as Democrats. But the last presidential election also felt to many people like the most partisan election. Are we really becoming more Independent as a nation? And what will that mean for politics?
