Poll: On Trump, we can’t even agree on why we disagree. But we assume the worst

Today USA Today published the results of a poll demonstrating the division in United States citizenship and politics. They found a “major disconnect and a mutual tendency to assume the worst.” One researcher explains:

“Washington is in gridlock because the people are in gridlock,” said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center. “Look no further than the lack of understanding and empathy among the people who elected them to go to DC to do their bidding."

This research highlights a major problem in America today–we don’t listen and we assume the worst in others.

"I think that just as a society in America we're becoming so polarized," said Cole Welty, 34, of San Diego. "Everyone is sticking to their comfort zone or staying in their bubbles."
