    We may have an unrecognized third political party.

    21st century Conservative/Moderate Democrats and the liberal/Moderate Republican are one and the same. They have similar political views and are political minorities today within the two major parties. However this was no true in 1980. Ronald Reagan was a Conservative Democrat and joined the Republican Party as a liberal Republican and got overwhelming votes from conservative wing of the Democrat Party and the liberal wing of the Republican Party. I believe this was a third movement in the two party system and exist today. I call them the Silent Moderate Party because they hold their views private and personal. I believe this third movement will emerge and influence the 2016 election if the right candidate emerges. At this point in time I believe Marco Rubio is such a candidate.

    No something like that does not exist; politicians move direction as they please, if it gets them elected.
