I was really interested in the results of this poll. I've been a registered Independent since I was old enough to vote. Over the years, I've pulled the switch for Republicans and Democrats depending on the person running. I've voted for liberal and conservative causes depending on the issue. My opinions on some issues have changed over the years, due to research and perhaps maturity. So I wondered how the poll would turn out... had I become more liberal or conservative? Seems that although some things have changed, I'm still pretty independent. I like that.
