I know it’s easy to say “the average American voter” but that’s not exactly true since Bush II and Trump didn’t win the popular vote. What would actually compel someone to vote for the winner in every election from 1988 through 2020?

Economically centrist to centre-left, socially centre-right. Something of a "security" voter in that he is heavily concerned about threats such as terrorism, crime, and pandemics.

Scared by Willie Horton, blamed HW Bush for the 1992 recession, feared Dole taking their entitlements away, thought Gore was sighing at them, thought Kerry was softer on terrorism than Bush, grew dissillusioned with the Iraq War and blamed W Bush for the 2008 recession, feared Romney would be an “uncaring” President, was convinced that there was something to Emailgate, and blamed Trump for COVID.

Someone in the midwest who turned 18 in 1988. Voted for Bush because his parents were voting for Bush. Went to college and liked Clinton's style. Got a good job in the booming economy so he voted for Clinton again in 1996.

By 2000, he is married with kids. Wasn't a fan of Clinton's affairs and liked George W. Bush tax cut ideas. The War on Terror further cemented the need to vote Republican.

By 2008 he is struggling finacally because of the housing bubble and votes Democrat because why not? He now needs some goverment aid so doesn't like Mitt Romney's comments on the 47%

But by 2016, he is a 46 year old white guy who doesn't like Hillary nor that Democrats are too far left on social issues. Likes Trump is pro-labor and anti-free trade.

Finally by 2020, his wife and daughters talk him into voting for Biden after seeing how much of an idiot Trump is.

Temperamentally conservative sort who will vote for Democrats when he blames the GOP for economic mismanagement.

An old school Southern or Rust Belt conservative independent who liked the social policies of George HW Bush, loved a fellow third-way Southerner Clinton and went on to vote for Bush because of Gore's environmental policies, felt out of touch by 'Yankee' John Kerry. Liked Obama's message about bringing jobs back to America, hated Trump's arrogance but couldn't stand Clinton for the same reasons as Kerry. Didn't like Trump's handling of COVID and tariffs hurting his job so he reluctantly voted for Biden.
