All politicians selectively use studies. That was not what I was referring to. I was referring to asymmetrical polarization.
That one party is running to its extreme faster than the other party is doing the same.
I usually see folks here or elsewhere complain about how liberal democrats have gotten, but one never hears the same from conservatives on the whole. I am not sure if that is because most people just recognize that and want a moderate sort of party or what.
Does that research mean the left is flawless? Not at all. Identity politics are particularly bad on the liberal side and there are numerous other issues. It does not change that in terms of policy positions of conservatives in Congress and in places of authority that what once was an extreme position has become the norm.
You could argue that the rise of the Medicare for all in the last few years push is the same. And I would agree, but if one thinks that it took nearly two decades to get to a point the right was getting at before then on many issues than it puts it into perspective.
Look Raist bunnies...
