268. Will Anyone Listen to Independents in 2024? A Special Short Episode with Paul Rieckhoff.

This episode is a little different. It’s a quick hit episode from host Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff)–with a reading of his recent op-ed that appeared on Smerconish.com (co-authored with John Opdycke(@jbopdycke, the President of Open Primaries). It highlights the influence of independent voters in the New Hampshire primary, making specific note of independent’s support of candidates Nikki Haley and Dean Phillips. While neither candidate won their primary, their performance underscored the challenges for Trump and Biden going forward. And what 2024 means for America–and for independents. 

Will 2024 be the year independent voters gain recognition in a political landscape dominated by partisan influences? Will there be an increased focus on independents, who constitute the largest and fastest-growing segment of the electorate, spanning diverse demographics and states? 

Independents are fed up with partisan politics and want a more collaborative political environment. We want change. We want better. In 2024, will we be heard?
