Anybody else sitting in the middle of the political spectrum thinking "both yall parties are crazy, you need to relax a bit". All a bunch of baby's and hypocrites.

A lot of people in the middle are saying that. I just have a hard time telling if it’s because they are a) legitimately evenly split on issues across parties, b) they don’t have a firm enough understanding of the issues they care about to take a hard stand on them, c) are actually libertarian and still believe economics live in a market vacuum, when in fact all economics are behavioral.

I don’t think it’s because they are evenly split on substantive issues, but I think a lot of people are turned off from politics in general. I have friends who don’t understand how Kamala can go from being so critical of Biden in the primary then join his ticket as VP. Same way they don’t understand how so many Republicans can be so critical
of Trump then support him for 4 years.

I think as political junkies (by virtue of being in this bowl) we kind of expect it, and accept this is just how things are. But to a lot of other people it all just looks too fake.

Define “middle.”

Eh, everyday conversations with people go much better than social media in my experiences. Think it's just the loud people that get the air time and reactions. Artificially inflates perception that more people are crazy than the reality.

Think the number of declared independent voters is greater than both D and R registered voters.

Nope

While you can make the argument it’s been going on for longer, the GOP has spent the last decade telling their base not to believe anyone but them. This gave us the Tea Party and Freedom Caucus. Now, the President is leading the charge, and half the country simply can’t accept the reality that Trump lost. The GOP is being burnt by the fire they started and fanned.
