It is possible to be moderate while retaining conservative values.
Reagan did it.
He would have been shunned if he ran in the past election, just as JFK would be seen as a radical right leaning fellow had he ran in Obamas place.

That is correct. Too polarized. Translation: Left wing Marxists and so called Right Wing Conservatives. I don't read anything about moderation. Moderates will lose every time. They stand for nothing.
