I am curious if this is true, how it would play out in the future.
The one thing that has been brought into sharp focus by Bernie Sanders, for me anyway, is the difference between people with conviction and people who pander. It seems Bernie, whether he is wrong headed or not, has conviction for what he says. He doesn't seem able to be bought off because he proposes policy based on his own common sense and sense of empathy (although it doesn't seem he "gets" mathematics very well...but thats not relevant here).
The entirety of the rest of the political jungle is made out of panderers. If there is proof in voting records that DJT has policies and approaches that a true majority of people appreciate, especially when that majority could represent just about anyone beyond the "true believer" lunatics on the fringe....how will that effect pandering? Will we see our "left" move quickly and resolutely to the center, while our "right" tries to hone in on that sweet spot of ideology to continue what DJT has started?
Im just really interested in seeing how it effects the lies we are told in exchange for votes.
