What The Center Actually Looks Like

Politicians from both sides of the spectrum should eat, sleep and shit this poll study. Published in the November 2013 issue, Esquire has a fascinating poll study performed by the pollsters from both the Obama campaigns AND the Romney campaigns.

This is really informative and incredibly telling about how much politicians don’t know about the people they are representing.

An exclusive 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. The data, compiled by the Benenson Strategy Group (pollster for Obama for America ’08 and ’12) and Neil Newhouse of Public Opinion Strategies (lead pollster for Romney for President), show us 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.
