Is Most of America in the Middle?

I read a newspaper story today about the rising Democratic Socialist party. It's the bookend of the Republican Tea Party. At times like this, the last thing we need is even more polarization. As I went through their platform, I realize that I have become more and more independent. I do not feel like our 2-party system serves us well any longer. Most folks active in party politics take an extreme position where there is little chance of negotiating a compromise. I think we should recognize independent candidates in primaries in order to attract more free-thinkers. It would legitimize their canidancy and only then will we know whether most of America have beliefs somewhere in the middle of what the two major parties are pushing.
