Party polarization at an all-time high in the US

Party polarization at an all-time high in the US

As per a poll released by Gallup, 89% of Republicans approved of President Trump versus just 7% of Democrats during the third year of his presidency. The 82-point split is the highest ever recorded (previous being a 79-point split during Trump’s second year in office). Worthwhile to know, the 10 most polarized years have all occurred in the past 16 years. The survey included 4,560 adults.

At some point this era of political polarization has got to end. Americans have to find some common ground to avoid disaster.
