If all politics is just fighting over the middle ground to get 50% +1, as we are sometimes told, then it is helpful to remember that where "the middle" is, is itself variable and subject to being nudged or even moved substantially depending on what time and place you're talking about. Note, for instance, this story from Eugene, Oregon, about the issue that apparently has that community split approximately down the middle.
