All candidates are moderate. Moderates are too stupid to see it. Being as close as possible but on the bigger side of the vote relative to a candidate is how you win a two candidate race. If you are already right of your opponent, it makes no sense to be anymore right than u have to be, ul only turn off the letier voters and gain nothing because you already have all the right ones.

Wrong. In the US there are three possible votes, R, D, and “didn’t bother.” In an election with a hard left socialist and a milquetoast RINO; small government pro-2A nationalists just won’t show up to pull the lever for a cronyist pussy globalist RINO.

This would be true for a single bell curve. But politics is not a single issue continuous bell curve. It is more like a set of hills. Where each hill is a party and they can gain or lose land (votes/members) by changing their stances.

For the US two party system the effect is two sides each form a bell curve with an overlapping of moderates in the middle. But pushing towards the middle only works until a more extreme party starts to be closer to the peak. This can easily be seen in both the Green Party and the Tea Party disrupting American politics in recent years.

Look if a candidate keeps 99% of employees policis laws an agencies. It's a moderate. and they all do that.

if it was 10%, there could be a semantic debate. but when it's less than 1% it's all moderate. That's how delusional you all are. If nothing changes it can't not be moderate.
