government has gone down quite a bit. people don't trust the government to do the right thing. elizabeth vonnahme, a political science professor, says that's leading voters away from the two major political parties. elizabeth professor of political science 15.19what we've seen overtime is an increase and negativity or hostility towards both political parties. and so when you say how do you feel about the republicans, how do you feel about the democratic party you see this quite negative attitude people have and so those of the individuals who are starting to say well i'm not a republican or a democrat, i am an independent. standup - percent -- that's the number of americans who identify politically as independents according to data gallup began that's a 7 point increase from jackie salit, president of independentvoting.org04.45i actually think that that 43% number is going to continue to rise because you can't produce good policy with a bad process. that is the situation
got to focus on changing the process and make it more democratic, we have to transfer power from the parties to the voters and we need a whole set of structural reforms in order to be able to do that.while both vonnahme and salit speculate that americans will increasingly identify as independents, neither believe voters will completely abandon voting in the two-party system. what they do anticipate is that candidates and politicians will instead change their rhetoric to better appeal to american voters.for the now, i'm terra hall. hall. the recent rise in political independence has come at the expense of both parties, but more among democrats than among republicans. republicans.over the last six years, democratic identification has fallen from 36-percent... the highest in the last 25 years -- to 30-percent. meanwhile... republican identification is down from 28-percent in 2008 to 26- percent last year. would a warning label about sugar... keep you from giving drinks to your kids?the new study that suggests knowledge.. isn't always powerful.
