94. And, I could buy into that if we had the same "bell" that we had several decades ago.
The problem today is that the middle of our bell holds positions similar to the right fringe of our bell in the '60's and '70's. i.e., todays moderate is yesterday's "Blue Dog".

The Bell Curve argument has always operated from a position of fear and uncertainty: "Let's play it safe! Let's not piss off ANYbody!"

There was a time when the Democrats' only interest in "average" was in identifying it so it could be improved upoon. We never considered being satisfied with "average".
