Esquire magazine has a new study out that claims that the American electorate is actually not divided into liberal and conservative extremes, but instead has a big, fat middle: A new Esquire-NBC News survey “shows us that everything we are told about politics in America today — that there is no middle ground between left and right, blue and red, us and them — is wrong… there is a large group of American voters — even a majority — who make up a New American Center that is passionate, persuadable, and very real. They are merely waiting for Washington to find them.”
They even provide an online survey to enable you to see where you fall on the continuum. I took it and — no surprise here — ended up in the progressive camp. Where are you on the political playing field?
