FORUM - No more middle ground in our democracies

    Research output: Other contribution

    Abstract

    The centre of politics across major democracies is being hollowed out by a combination of anger, impatience and fatigue, writes Mathew Davies. Hillary Clinton’s 0.3 per cent victory over Bernie Sanders in Iowa might have constituted a win, but it was hardly an endorsement. Polls in mid-2015 often gave Clinton a 40-point lead over the then unknown Senator from Vermont. In New Hampshire the result has been even more worrying for Clinton –a lead that was once over 30 points turned into a Sanders victory with a 22 per cent margin come polling day.
