Re-imagining Governance in an Age of Polarization

The Unite America Institute has undertaken a year-long project to explore how independent leaders can impact a political system that has become increasingly divided and dysfunctional: Can independents help to bridge the growing gap between Republicans and Democrats? Or will they be suffocated by a system that has historically been dominated by two major parties?

The result of that project is a groundbreaking, first-of-its-kind white paper that shares our findings for how independents can have a positive impact on our politics. As the paper concludes, the transformative impact that independents can have on governance is not only possible, it is already underway.
