Thanks for taking the survey!
The Independent Voter Network (IVN.us) is an open news platform for independent-minded authors and readers. The mission of IVN is to raise the level of civil discourse to a place where solutions are more persuasive than talking points, and participation is not conditioned on your party affiliation.
The current congressional approval rating is just over 15%, trust in the news media is under 30%, most importantly, voters are fleeing the parties in record numbers, with about HALF of Americans describing themselves as independents. Still, with an increasingly partisan government and media, the voices of independent-minded Americans are not represented.
The purpose of IVN.us is to provide unfiltered political news and policy analysis across the political spectrum. Unlike traditional media, IVN actively encourages writers and readers of differing political tendencies to engage in a constructive dialogue.
