Later, she is joined by Lanae Erickson to discuss the Funhouse Mirror Effect in Politics, what voters really want, moderate policy, rank choice voting, and pushing social progress from the middle instead of the far left. She points out that being a Moderate doesn’t mean you have to be meh and introduces us to other Moderate Leaders we should be watching.
