You betray a narrow political bias with your question. The US has one of the smallest political spectrums of all industrialized nations. There are far, far more choices than those held forth by the US.
Sometimes in order to avoid the chaos and time commitment of infinite choices in a finite world (or poll) American polls have some sort of "other" option at the bottom, especially if there is a thread ability to explain yourself.

Definitely more moderate, the excesses of the far right and the far left are both extremely dangerous. The far right leads to fascism, the far left to communism (I'm not talking about Marx, but Stalin and Pol Pot).

I disagree, the US is more conservative in many ways than most European countries, but more liberal than other countries. There is a very broad spectrum of political views in the US. The main difference is that the Republican and Democratic parties in the US are actually both relatively diverse when it comes to ideology, whereas in many other countries parties are more uniform in their beliefs, but there are more parties representing the different points of view.
