The problem is not too much opinion. It’s too little fact. And that’s on us.
You cannot make a political extremist out of an individual who has a firm grounding in economics, economic history, political history, US civics, and basic sociology.
But you can turn someone with a STEM degree who slept through their liberal arts classes into an extremist, easy.
(I have a STEM degree, btw. I’m not taking a cheap shot here. Just stating fact.)
