Political polarization is at its highest level in decades, with no real chance of slowing down. That’s according to a new study from Michigan State University. Published this month in the Social Networks Journal, the study found that political polarization, or the division between Republicans and Democrats, is not only growing but so is the resentment that the two parties have for each other.
WGVU’s Daniel Boothe recently spoke with Dr. Zachary Neal. He’s an associate professor of psychology and global urban studies at Michigan State University and is the study’s author.
