In this Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012 photo, shop owner Bryan Baine, top center, talks with musician Jeremy Elder, right, after his set during open mic night at Baine's Books in Appomattox, Va. People may be hesitant to, at least publicly, brand themselves by party identity, said Baine, a former composition instructor. "Why wouldn't you be increasingly reluctant to put that label on yourself if it means this whole bunch over here is going to make assumptions about you or that whole bunch is going to make assumptions about you just because you said you were a Republican or Democrat?" he said.
