35. problem is, your take will be viewed as extremest by many independents

and that is what the OP is asking about. We are talking about independents, who are probably the majority of people. These are folks who are not overly concerned with abstract economic and social theories but are concerned about concrete issues that affects them personally. They don't give a rat's ass about ideology and they don't watch Fox or read Think Progress.

The part you miss is that, as sociologist James D. Wright observed, that the guy in Montana or rural Illinois will see themselves as being scapegoats by big city politicians who can't fix their own crime problems. I saw former Ohio Gov. Strickland give a kick assed speech at the convention. The NRA supported him over the asshole that beat him. Was Obama and DNC pandering then?
