This begs the question, though: is there someone not patently crazy who can lay out a clear, specific set of ideas that is moderate voters might find appealing as an alternative?
Paul Ryan laid out a plan that balances the budget in 2043 and liberals called his plan "extreme". So to answer your question, no, there is no chance moderate voters will ever be given an appealing alternative because any moderate alternative will be branded as extreme.
