Stanford professor: moderates remain, but neither party serves them

(Repost from 14May18)

There is an interesting interpretation of the perceived growing polarization in America, by Stanford political scientist Morris Fiorina.

I won’t go into the details of his thesis; you can read the article if you like, it’s quick. His piece is dated 2014 but the assertion continues to be made by other commentators in ’17/18.

His bottom line is this, “The unsorted and inconsistent [political] middle still exists, but it has no home in either party.”

An opportunity.
