Taking your analysis at face value, it makes no sense. I consider myself a Moderate and haven't voted Republican since 1984. Many millions of people are repelled by everything Conservatives claim to stand for. I vote for Democrats or Greens, but never Republicans.

The bigger problem is that people vote based on lies and rumors of what the parties actually do or claim to want. People vote based on something they heard or bumper sticker slogans.

We have actually have data showing that most people want key Democratic policies:

A tax on fossil fuels: 50%

$15/hour minimum wage: 56%

A sales ban for assault weapons like AR-15s: 57%

Raising taxes on incomes above $1 million: 62%

A Green New Deal: 63%

Legalize recreational cannabis: 63%

A pathway to citizenship for the undocumented: 64%

Medicare for All (that want it) — i.e. a public option to private insurance: 70%
