It's really not Republicans and Democrats I keep track of. I know how they'll vote. It's independents that decide election. As for vaccinations, I haven't seen or haven't paid any attention to the percentages via party.

What I'm interested in is actions that could influence independents as Gallup puts their percentage at 43% of the electorate as of 21 July 2021. Which that 43% can be broke down into independents lean Republican 15, lean Democratic 18, true or pure independents with no leans, 10, total 43%. No figures for August yet.

What this means is Democrats counting independent lean Democratic make up 45% of the electorate vs. the Republicans along with independents lean Republican at 41%

Keep in mind those who identify themselves with either major party vote for their party's candidates on average 92% of the time. while independents who lean toward one party or the other will vote for the party they lean toward 73% of the time on average.

The bad news since last month is independents are now stating they'll vote for the Republican candidate for the House,40%, for the Democratic candidate 35%, rest are undecided/not sure. Although I don't put much stock in the generic congressional polls. It's the best I have to go on until redistricting occurs.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
