Center Right, Center Left


CENTER RIGHT, CENTER LEFT….Just in case you’re curious, here’s the difference between a center right country and a center left country. If you squint, you can see it.

In the end, 90% of Republicans voted for McCain and 90% of Democrats voted for Obama — almost exactly the same as the 2004 election. The difference? Independents got bluer by about eight points compared to four years ago. The Republican Party lost the middle everywhere, and as a result the map got slightly bluer everywhere too.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
