Political Polarization in the US

You know how it seems like the USA is becoming more politically polarized? Well, that’s not just your mind playing tricks on you. The Pew Research Center for the People and the Press does a lot of polling and recently published a study titled “Political Polarization in the American Public.” One product of the polling was the GIF seen above that demonstrates not only how the political winds have blown since 1994, but the size of the gap between conservatives and liberals. Amazing how the country actually pulled together during the George W. Bush years, and how things are breaking apart during the Obama administration.
