Suppose at the start of an election season two candidates with extreme positions are running against each other. The median voter model predicts that each candidate will become more moderate because:

▸ voters with extreme views will not switch loyalties, but voters in the middle will vote for the candidate whose views are closest to his or her own views.

▸ median voters will refuse to vote for a candidate who holds extreme views.

▸ voters with extreme views are less likely to vote than are voters with moderate views.

▸ the debates convince each candidate that the other position has some good points.
