32. Government moves to the right
because that is who we elect to run it. There never was a left-of-center majority, and hasn't been one since the early 60s. We get what we vote for.

If you want leftward movement, it must become true that any move toward the right causes your poll numbers to fall and your chances to be re-elected decrease. As it is, moves to the center or center right cause poll numbers to rise and assure re-election. We get what we will vote for.
