Duh! Pew study shows increasing political polarization

in Uncategorized by

“The average partisan gap has nearly doubled over this 25-year period – from 10 percent in 1987 to 18 percent in the new study,” a report out yesterday finds.

Dan Balz: “The Pew report found that the changes began to accelerate during George W. Bush’s presidency. Obama’s presidency, the report says, has received ‘the most extreme partisan reaction to government in the past 25 years. Republicans are far more negative toward government than at any previous point, while Democrats feel far more positive.'”
