Anthony LoPinto

I am always careful to stay clear of politics as the Executive Watch is best when it is apolitical.  However, this week I noticed a report that a Gallup poll found that 42% of Americans now identify as independents, up from 39% in 2016, with the balance of 29% identifying as Democrats and 27% as Republicans. Notwithstanding what side of the aisle you reside on, or if you are one of the centrists, few would disagree that our political system is increasingly polarized, and healthy negotiation by both parties with solutions in the center, just doesn’t happen often, if at all.
