The Reverse Elite Consensus

There's probably a greater for potential for the reverse elite consensus than the elite consensus (mildly liberal on social issues but pretty right on economic ones), but it is hard to see how the basic alignment of the parties could be radically altered.

Though the candidate himself wasn't necessarily all that outspoken on the issues, preferring instead to just brand himself as a guy who would go to Washington and magically fix stuff, I basically saw Ross Perot/Reform party as that party. There are voters there, just not enough of them.
