  •  don't confuse winning elections (2+ / 0-)

    (where 55% is a landslide) with winning hearts and minds.

    In general, the country is 33-33-33. What's happened is that the R's have lost the mid-third on many issues, and their enablers in the media (Digby rightly points to Gergen and Cokie as establishment types who exemplify this) therefore label the 66% as 'left', 'far left', waaay left' and 'extreme left'.

    And pardon me if I take mild exception to your echo chamber comment. After all, I'm as mainstream as they come. ;-)

    •  the problem with Americna politics (0+ / 0-)

      you're right the country is roughly 33-33-33

      but in the past The Republicans have strived to convince the middle 33 they should be part of the right 33.  

      While the Democrats have been trying to convice the middle 33 the Dems are the middle 33 anyways.....

      forever shifting the window to the right.

      The world will end not with a bang, but with a "Do'oh!"
