“Far from increasing, Americans’ attachment to their political parties has considerably weakened over the past years. Liberals no longer strongly identify with the Democratic Party and conservatives no longer strongly identify with the Republican Party.” So if we’re not particularly attached to our political parties, what’s causing America’s extreme political divide? Well, it’s not about your side. It’s about the other side. We don’t love our team all that much. But we really hate the other team. The Atlantic: Republicans Don’t Understand Democrats—And Democrats Don’t Understand Republicans. (Hate the one you oppose is the new love the one you’re with…)
