More people in the United States than ever are breaking away from the political duopoly by refusing to self-identify as either Democrat or Republican — and they now effectively comprise the true silent majority: Independents.

Indeed, Independents as a group reached 40% of the population for the first time in 2011, and have comprised at least that percentage since then.
