Political Science Professor Seth Masket Writes About the Centrist Project — 4 Comments

  1. My biggest issue with the project is that there are many types of “centrists” I would hate an authoritarian centrist, which is close to what Clinton & Trump were, but love a liberty minded centrist, like Gary Johnson was.

  2. I disagree Brandon. Centrist should mean being center in regards to the three major axis of political ideologies (fiscal, social, and government power). Somebody that’s a centrist should find a roughly perfect balance of all three. France’s Macron is probably a perfect example.

    You can’t really be a libertarian or authoritarian centrist. A centrist should be perfectly in between with no more than 20% deviation in either direction.

  3. Judge Moore is leading? This could be an interesting one to watch.
