Here's my thoughts about the "middle". Like the survey, if 20 questions are used to define right vs left, right agree on most of the 20 and left agree on most of the twenty. Folks in the middle could theoretically *disagree* on all twenty and still be in the middle.
So in a digital world (1 or 0, black or white, postitive or negative, etc), simple minded people are confounded by complexity and unwilling to invest any effort. The reaction to not being provided with a simple way to evaluate someone, is hostile.
