    It doesn't seem to do any good for people -- Christie or anybody else -- to tell them they hold positions on issues a majority of grown-ups find extremist and unacceptable.

      With tons and tons and floods of spam, and so they get the assumption that everyone they know thinks just like them.  And then they can't let go of the fact most people just tune them out or have written them off.   All they are doing is sitting in a circle jerk of like minded people babbling back and forth convincing fewer and fewer every time.
