The Exhausted Majority
The Hidden Tribes of America, a project launched by More in Common, identified what they call the Exhausted Majority: “members of the Exhausted Majority aren’t political centrists or moderates. On specific issues, their views range across the spectrum.” They are united in important ways:
They are fed up with the polarization plaguing American government and society
They are often forgotten in the public discourse, overlooked because their voices are seldom heard
They are flexible in their views, willing to endorse different policies according to the precise situation rather than sticking ideologically to a single set of beliefs
They believe we can find common ground
New This Week in Outrage Episodes!
It’s everything the Outrage Overload podcast is not. It’s not edited. It’s not scripted. It’s lightly researched. There’s no sophisticated podcast studio equipment. It’s almost always over an hour long. It’s David and Lisa talking about this week in outrage, what was in the news, in the memes, and maybe finding some backstory with a humorous (at least to us) twist.
