(okay moron, its in a book that has the question in it, that's why its been asked)

'The answer is that it was given to the two major parties that are very similar. Both tend to be moderate, built on compromise and regularly try to occupy "the middle of the road."

Both parties seek the same prize; the votes of the majority of the electorate.

To do so, they must win over the same voters. Inevitably, each party takes policy positions that don't differ much from the other major party.'
