Would you agree that the vast majority of Democrats & Republicans are good, honest, decent people, but the narrative is driven by extremists?

When it comes to politics it seems we define ourselves by our best examples and our opposition by their worst examples. This naturally leads people to define the opposition by the extremists - the people looting & burning shops, or the people flying Nazi flags & attacking members of the media.


But aren't the vast majority of people are in the middle?

    I think that's a pretty reasonable description, with the caveat that Trump - based on his denial of climatology, epidemiology, and so much else - must be classified among the extremists.

    It's kind of like working in customer service.   You remember the person who tipped you $500 or the person who was so crazy you are still telling the story 20 years later.

    But the other 99.99 of people who are in the middle like normal people do not catch our (or the media's) attention.

    No good person would ever vote for Trump.

    Except there seems to be many more extremists on the left.  Some are even in Congress.
