Only 15.1 percent reported “Democrat” and 13.8 percent reported“Republican,” while the remaining 71.1 percent either reported being “Independent”(68.3 percent), “Other” (2.2 percent), or “decline to answer” (0.6 percent).

That's an unusually high proportion of independent voters.

Maybe for people of our age, but it seems about right for a youthful population.

They are all a bunch of socialists and libertarians!   /shakefist

Some are also non-aligned because they take little or no interest in politics.

Socialists, communists, apathists, and libertarians!

Why can't the libertarians come up with a word that ends in "ist" like everyone else?   >:(

Well, ‘socialist’ is derived from ‘socialism’, and ‘communist’ from ‘communism’, and many ideologies end in ‘-ism.’  So the libertarian ideology could be ‘libertarianism’, and an adherent of the libertarianistic ideology would be the mouthful ‘libertarianist.’  ‘Libertarian’ is actually an adjective.  Using it as a noun is very common in German and almost as common in English (many English political terms were directly borrowed, slightly modified, from 19th century German).

Isn't it funny how Aelx Jones talks about pedophilia rings in pizza parlors and the democrat party where they are far more likely to be in the Catholic church?

InfoWars’ Alex Jones busted on air with trans porn in his phone browser

InfoWars host and anti-transgender commentator Alex Jones inadvertently showed a bit of his browser history on his show, revealing that he has watched an adult video involving a transgender actress.

Jones has a history of anti-transgender comments and repeatedly uses the word “tranny” to describe trans women.

While promoting his brand of nutritional supplements – which are just multivitamins with an enormous mark-up – a camera zoomed in on Jones’s phone.

He showed viewers how to access the site to buy the supplements, and then closed the page, revealing several of the last few websites he has visited.

One of them has the title “Naughty tbabe Marissa Mi-,” which appears to be a video starring Marissa Minx, a pornographic actress who is transgender.

Porn featuring trans people is often VERY trans phobic.
Aside from the general unprofessionalism of such a slip, its one of the very few things he has ever said or done that should not be criticised or a thing made out of.

I think the criticism is over the hypocrisy.

And my point is that its not necessarily hypocrisy and that pushing it does not seem at all helpful to the trans community.
