31% of North Carolinians identify as moderate, while 72% reported they are either somewhat liberal, moderate, or somewhat conservative.
Over the past decade, the number of voters registered as unaffiliated has grown, while the share of both Democratic and Republican registrations has declined.
Centrism is a political ideology based on reason and pragmatism considerate of short and long term thinking - Centrism is not defined by compromise or moderation, it is considerate of them.
Centrism is about achieving common sense solutions that appropriately address current and future needs; support the public trust; and serve the common good with consideration of risk and capacity in context of these needs. Centrists believe that solutions are more important than bias.
The North Carolina Centrist Coalition is a grassroots organization that believes that the divisiveness and polarization present in the political systems in our state and country inhibit government from finding comprehensive and collaborative solutions to our most pressing problems.
We believe in a moderate, common sense approach to government and we reject the notion that either of the two major political parties has a monopoly on good ideas. We believe governing is best done through compromise and consensus. We believe in always putting leadership above partisanship.
