Most independents are not all that “independent” politically. While they may not align strictly with any particular party, the majority still lean towards one side or the other.

Unlike the ideologues and partisans destroying politics with their uncompromising stances, political moderates are seen as the bridge builders, the peacemakers, and the voice of reason in an increasingly polarized society.
