Your opinion is fringe


Source: The Purple Election Map | Observer

I often see conservatives complaining about how their views are decried as “fringe,” that the only people who don’t recognize the normality of their worldview are those in liberal, coastal cities.

The problem is, there aren’t really that many people outside of those liberal, coastal cities (especially if you include “the third coast” of the Great Lakes), which kind of makes their opinion fringe by default.

It’s also galling that while they whine about being labelled fringe, their political views are vastly over-represented in the US government.
