So you have a centrist voter in Wisconsin he/she voted for Obama twice, not having a good choice this election last election cycle they stayed home and never voted.
But now they see an insane shift occurring one that the democrats won't stop rather they will encourage he/she sees it building without letup, they are't too big on Trump and the GOP, but they see at least this way it might get stopped so in 2018 they vote GOP and in 2020 they vote for Trump for the first time, why; to try and stop the shift of craziness. I think the independents that have critical thinking skills are being pushed away equally by the Alt-left and Alt-right, they can't identify with either side, they are politically homeless. But at some point they are going to pick a side.
Just like the Ron Paul libertarians, trying never to pick the lesser of two evils.

But maybe to use a Star Wars reference it's actually a choice of what you would rather fight a "Death Star" or a "Super Star Destroyer", again picking the lessor of two evils may become a political necessity in the near future.

No, because the "alt-left" doesn't exist. It's a made up name by alt-right extremists and right wing talking heads.

Extreme left liberals don't call themselves "alt-left". No one on that side of the political spectrum uses that term when talking about themselves. It's made up. Fake. Fabricated.

Now, alt-right? Sure. There are lots of people who call themselves alt-right. In fact, it is those very people who invented the term "alt-left" because they wanted to take the pressure off of themselves.

Find me a radical liberal who calls themselves "alt-left". I'll wait.

Give me 30 seconds and I'll find you 100 far-right folks proud to be called "alt-right".

Because some right-wing dudes decided to call themselves that.

I can't find any liberals who call themselves "alt-left". I can find plenty of right wingers who call themselves alt-right tho...

Like Kettu wrote, there is no alt-left.
I looked on a chart that lists my views as liberal.

GOP is already pretty far right. Sticking with Trump is driving them to Autocracy. That's the craziness. I have yet to see a personality cult lead to anything good.

OP no offense but this sounds like a fantasy the alt-right would wank to.

It's almost comical that even someone supposedly independent can't get you to realize your sides gone overboard. You are getting hung up on the name rather than what your side is doing.

Whatever the name, if you don't realize independents broke for Trump this last election, then well, I can't help you. Stay in denial.

Yeah, I went into some of the craziest left-leaning and hardcore liberal places and no one was using the word "alt-left" to describe themselves.

What people on ATS don't understand is yes -- there are radical liberals just like radical conservatives.

Some of those radical conservatives call themselves alt-right.

However....

None of those radical liberals call themselves alt-left. That name, this "alt-left" was invented by the alt-right.

More total votes for Hilary bro. You're putting feels before reels.

I'm going to post this again here, bold emphasis mine:



“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'” - Isaac Asimov

Thats fine......look at any exit poll you want. Going further left cost you the election. I'm glad you don't believe/realize that.

No, if nazi's don't call themselves nazi's they're not nazi's. They're obviously something else with another name.

Give it some time. Eventually it will come to the point where these young ones will want to distance themselves from the Millennials.

Other articles like Forbes are confirming many of the young ones in Generation Z will be Conservative.




According to research, Gen Z is more individualistic, more conservative both socially and fiscally, and they’re already making waves of impact on our political system.


www.forbes.com...

I'm pretty sure Generation Z don't want associate themselves with people like the ones in the videos below:
