A piece in Politico about political scientist Rachel Bitecofer suggests that independent swing voters might not really exist. David Pakman discusses the piece. He shares that this theory is one that he has long suspected. "Elections are not changed by people who change their minds, but they are changed, rather, by who decides to vote," Pakman says. It is a "waste of time" to go after that "centrist" voter, concludes Pakman. He admits that "swing voters" exist anecdotally, but in very small numbers.
The David Pakman Show is a news and political talk program, known for its controversial interviews with political and religious extremists, liberal and conservative politicians, and other guests.
