I don't think it will.The most extreme voices just rise to the top in world of social media, where everything gets retweeted/shared.I think all the 2020 candidates will eventually have the support of even the Bernie Bros.I know more moderates who didn't vote for Clinton (or Trump) b/c of their personal dislike, than I do liberals, but that's just anecdotal.
People used to call Coulter and Rush and those guys the extremes as well.Until their messaging started being used by the President.
What I'm talking about isn't an independent/moderate problem.It's that if you allow the loud extremes to steer the party, they'll likely steer it WAY off course.One of the things circa the early 2000s that I thought was really dangerous on the right was the invention of the "Rhino" and the demonization of independents as wishy/washy, believe-in-nothings.
I hear echos of the same right now.I hope it doesn't evolve into the same kind of beast the right created.
