Political Polarization Is Dividing America

A new Pew Research study finds Republicans and Democrats in Congress "aren't the only partisans who deeply distrust people from the other side of the aisle," the New York Times reports.

"Liberals and conservatives prefer to associate with and live near their fellow partisans. They would be unhappy if their children married someone with a different political viewpoint. The result isn't just polarized politics, but a divided society where liberals and conservatives increasingly keep apart."

Really amazing charts over at Wonk Wire.
