US independent voters favor Democrats and against MAGAs: Axios
Survey reveals that independent US voters lean towards Republican candidates while resistant to Trump-backed candidates.
A survey conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago for The Associated Press and published by Axios revealed that a large number of US eligible voters are against a Trump majority GOP, despite not leaning towards a Democratic-dominant GOP as well.
The data showed that Independent midterm voters, despite not favoring either party, are more strongly resistant to Republicans.
Support for Republican candidates among independent voters has been nearly the same for the past three midterm elections at nearly 38%, which made up 8% of electoral votes in 2022, 5% in 2020 and 12% in 2018.

Another major factor that hurt the GOP votes is the WHO Trump fiasco, including his MAGA campaign and the Jan 6 insurrection probe.
Topics that appeal to Gen Z voters, were notes hit by the Democratic party to bring more votes and wins as well.
