Ruy Teixeira has a very informative and smart article up at TNR about "Independent" voters and the myths that surround them. I confess that I have used the term sloppily in the past when a better designation might be "swing voters." But whatever we call them, they are decisive come election time and, as Teixeira demonstrates, part of the political challenge facing the country is that there is no real way for these swing voters to effectively bring about a less partisan, more deal-making political moment.
