    political spectrum

    I found in dictionary that spectrum means -- a range of opinions, feelings, etc.

    But still I couldn't understand `political spectrum' and `social spectrum' in the following sentence.


    He has support from across the whole political spectrum.

    The group includes students from both ends of the social spectrum.

    Could anyone help me?

    Re: political spectrum

    He has support from across the whole political spectrum. = Members of many varying political groups support him.
    The group includes students from both ends of the social spectrum.= varying from the very popular (cheerleaders) to the very unpopular (dorks, geeks, nerds, etc.).
    I hope this helps.
