Yes, politics is more polarized than it used to be.

The Pew Research Center for Peoples and the Press has a new report out documenting how Republicans and Democrats have become more divided over the last couple of decades. Liberals and Conservatives are more likely to associate with others with similar views. Moreover, the more extreme the views, the more politically active the people are likely to be. Not good news for those who believe that the role of the legislature is to compromise for the good of the country.
