Chart explains INOs, ‘Independents in Name Only’

By on March 11, 2012

Ruy Teixeira, in a harsh review of Linda Killian’s new book, notes that most “independents” are partisan voters:

As numerous studies have shown, the overwhelming majority of Americans who say there are “independent” lean toward one party or the other. Call them IINOs, or Independents In Name Only. IINOs who say they lean toward the Republicans think and vote just like regular Republicans. IINOs who say they lean toward the Democrats think and vote just like regular Democrats.
