Number of Independents at Record High, Mostly Because Conservatives Dislike the Republican Party
The portion of Americans identifying as independents has grown in each of the last three years. This rise in independents is mostly due to a drop in Republican identifiers. Republican identification has declined from 34 percent in 2004, the highest on record, to 28 percent in 2008.

This means that the rise in independents since 2010 is mostly due to disillusioned former Republicans no longer wishing to claim the Republican Party label.

In looking at this data it is important to understand the difference between "independent-leaners" and "true independents." ...

As US has already pointed out, moderates lose. How is it you can't remember? But that is the reason you want one anyway, just as your msm does every nomination period. After the msm approved Repub moderate gets nominated, suddenly he becomes trash, because they only wanted him for insurance purposes anyway, just in the unlikely case the Demogogueacrat they really want loses.

Oh, as for Christie, poorer handling by the administration over a number of incidents gets no one fired, nor any close inspection by the govt media.

Scandal?

Does histroy agree with Jim?

The republicans have run 3 moderates--Dole, McCain, and Romney--all losers (though one could easily make an argument that since we have in multiple districts anomalies like 100% or better voting for Obama that the dems stole the election from Romney) and each one of them lost.

We have two Bush's that ran as conservatives (their records are more moderate than conservative), and won.
We have 2 landslide wins by conservative Reagan including one in which he won all but the home state of the democratic nominee. The LAST thing republicans need to do is put out a moderate democratic lite candidate if they want to win the election. (assuming the dems don't do their dirty work again. In one voting precinct it didn't matter who you selected the vote went to Obama)

McCain, apparently a hireling for Arabs, though what was bad about him at the time his completely open border policy and female running mate.

Actually, for a Catholic Paul Ryan, seems to have some sensible ideas, e.g., Paul Ryan: ‘I Agree’ We Need To Reinstate Glass-Steagall. Former moderate Northern Republicans, who are now Independents, didn't like Romney, for several reasons, he was a Mormon, A Mormon in the White House? 10 Things Every American Should Know About Mitt Romney, He was an investment banker, what of those people who help create the economic mess that we have, He didn't support GOPcare=Romneycare=Obamacare.

Right wing demagogues, like either Cruz or R. Paul, would lose an election by a much wider margin than the previous two sets of Republican candidates, and the poor handling of the bridge affair by C. Christie, really means --and sadly I will note-- we could very well have a Ms. President, the next time around, if the Republicans don't pick a sensible moderate.

Selection of moderate presidential candidates such as McCain and Romney is what cost the Repubs the White house. You like moderate Repubs for that very reason, I'm guessing. You can have the fat lazy establishment GOP, and you can have the corrupt degenerate Democrats, too.

Stock up on tea, Jim. It's good for you.

Jim,
What, exactly, makes someone (in your assessment, EVERYONE) a right wing nut for their affiliation with the Tea Party? Is this a personal research you have done or service provided by MSNBC?

I like many other people quit the Republican Party years ago because of the likes of Richard Nixon, and refused to be identified with the right wing nuts of the tea party. So I'm glad to be an Independent for quite a few years now. The only Republicans tolerable, would be those of the Sam’s Club Republicans Vs. the Tea Party.

So, any recent defections could in part be from Republicans not be radical right enough but the large abandonment of northern Republicans especially those who Republicans from the Civil War is because it became something of a John Birch Organization, run by Dixiecans. In other words they aren't moderate enough.

The Republicans Party is dead, but doesn't know enough to lie down. It's what happens when you try to be different from the Democrats by becoming more like them. Tea is becoming the favorite drink of the new and increasing opposition.
