    Maybe fifteen years back Jon Stewart pointed out that politics is dominated by extremists because most people have better shit to do with their time.

Where do you think Bernie Sanders fits into this?

For fifteen years he was the only self-professed Socialist in a government of Democrats and Republicans. He's as extremist as they come.

So, it wasn't that people's policies were extremist but their views on things? That makes sense, now that I think about it. Many people of both parties (haven't seen much Dems, though) are utterly stubborn about the way things are supposed to be done all around the board.
