What caught my attention was not the graph itself, but the title above it: “Democrats like compromise.  Independents like compromise.  Republicans don’t like compromise.”

Couldn’t this graph just as easily be titled something like the phrase below?

“Democrats don’t want principled politicians.  Independents don’t want principled politicians.  Republicans want principled politicians.”
