A wealth tax is considered an 'extreme' policy but polls at 60-70% support, repealing Obamacare is also considered 'extreme' (probably less extreme) but polls at half the support of a wealth tax, if not less. The political center as described by the pundits is overall to the right of the actual political center in terms of what the electorate actually believes, mainly so on economic issues.

Trump can't move to the center because 1) he is who he is and is simply incapable of trying to be anyone else, and 2) everyone would see it as a cynical lie even if he could.
