A political term used to describe those people who know not what they believe or are too chickenshit to take a position or pick a side. Also used by these bottom feeders to create an air of self-importance since their vote is "up for grabs" or because they are too thoughtful to make a choice. Typically seen eating cake or pie with one hand while stuffing more into their pants with the other.

The only logical political stance these days. A very smart way of thinking. These people usually take a lot more time to think about what's going on in this world. Unless you come across one who is actually not independent but doesn't want to call them selves Conservative, Democrat, Republican, or Liberal.
Independent: I think that it's more logical to look at all of the views of the candidates when voting for one during an election. The election wasn't made for people to still with just one political party.
