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.

Divisive partisanship is preventing us from accomplishing “jack.”

Americans’ propensity to quickly leap to negative prejudgements of ideological opponents poisons our ability to interact with the teammates we need to advance our personal and national goals.

We’re going to fix that.
