It must have been 20 years ago when a traditional, longtime Washington Democrat said his party, to which he had been very loyal, left him. He didn’t feel he had left the party. He still supported some incumbent Democrats but he could no longer stomach the party’s swing to the far left. It is much further to the left today than it was 15 or 20 years ago.

This offended Democrat didn’t become a Republican. He became an Independent. Thousands of others, who were middle-minded on issues, also became Independents.
