18. I was talking about people leaving the Dem Party and turning

My town over the last few years has gone from a predominantly Democratic haven to one where Independents are the majority. People left the Dem Party because they were sick of the "me-too" Dem politics.

These Independents are progressive on social issues but fiscally conservative, and they may vote Dem, but they choose not to be called Democrats. That is what I meant that the Dem Party is dying.
