Estudios Públicos N° 42, 1991. THE PARADOX OF THE ELECTORAL MAJORITY Where is the Center? Mark Klugmann (author)

Traditionally, the political debate in our country has arisen in terms of the Left-Right divide. In this context, the different political movements have sought to establish themselves in the "Center" of that divide, as one way of maximizing their political support. However, according to the author, evidence would indicate that at least one-third of the voters do not define themselves in those terms and, moreover, those who do, use the terms "Right" and "Left" in a different way than historically understood.
It is therefore argued that if the desire is to model a more exact description of the Chilean political reality, new dimensions must be included to the political-electoral analysis.
This multi-dimensional analysis in which the left-right divide is one more of the diverse dimensions present in the Chilean political scenario would help better discover the "Center," which will, in turn, help elaborate more appropriate electoral strategies. These strategies, as a consequence of the inclusion of the new dimensions, could differ substantially from those now being developed by the different political parties.
