Even though most Americans are politically moderate, American politics is careening to the right.Why? What can be done?

The New York Times - Matt Bai

There is substantial truth to most of Hacker and Pierson's claims about Republican tactics. But is this duplicity really the sole reason, or even the main one, that so many moderate voters continue to help elect conservatives…For all its pretensions to objectivity, Off Center deteriorates into just the latest example in our political discourse of what might be called confirmational analysis—that is, a work whose primary purpose is to confirm what its audience already believes.
