Well that just backs up what I say about looking inside the bubble? I'm sure there will be Trump supporters who consider themselves to be reasonable people with good intentions and will look over at Corbyn supporters as though they're crazies from another world too. But opinion polls, news reports and social media take a wider picture.Gibbon wrote:Crikey! I'm not sure which Corbyn supporters you've been talking to, but that's an unrecognisable definition with regards to the ones I know, myself included.Rover the Top wrote:Collectively, both are supporting extreme candidates for self-serving motivations, oblivious to what's in the interests or wants of the majority of the country. Both assume they know better than everyone else as to what's good for everyone else, dismiss any opposition as some force of evil and look within their little bubble to reaffirm that they are on the road to revolution. The irony being, they're only strengthening the position of the opposition as they drive away traditional supporters of their own party.
As for all parties assuming they know what's best for everyone else, I don't think that's true. Ones that are serious about getting into government would normally try to find some middle ground that appeals to as many as possible.
