Poll: Americans Agree The Two Parties Are Too Extreme

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

There is some good news hidden in the latest Pew poll

Pew Research Center:

Pew has Joe at 54% approval which is further proof that the honeymoon period is fading and that nothing much has really changed. We can also see that support for Joe among Whites is strongly related to education with post-grads and college graduates being his base:

Strong Republicans and Strong Democrats hate each other:

It is important to keep in mind though that the country is now 25% Democrat, 25% Republican and 50% Independent. Most Americans think both political parties are too extreme in their positions and support for a third party is at a record high:

Fortunately, we’re not in Civil War 2, the “insurgency” we heard about on CNN and MSNBC failed to materialize and there is little support among partisans for violent groups:

This country is intensely polarized in lots of ways, but not in others. The COVID relief bill, for example, has 65% to 75% support. Republicans and Democrats also overwhelming say that health care is an important issue. Trump voters rate “people have high quality health care” as their fourth most important issue and Biden voters rank health care as their second most important issue.

There are really only two issues which are the cause of the intense polarization and chronic dysfunction in government: immigration and political correctness/wokeness

BTW, if you turn on FOX News, the two issues that they are focusing on which resonate strongly with Republican voters are … immigration and political correctness or wokeness.

Is it worth it for the Democrats?

The polls clearly show there is no appetite for immigration reform even among “Latinx” voters who don’t even rate immigration in their top ten issue priorities. Progressive activists support open borders and political correctness much to the political detriment of the Democrats.

Democrats are not motivated by immigration. Republicans are strongly motivated by immigration. It would really be better for Democrats to drop the issue because it ISN’T worth the trouble:

What are the two issues that attract White working class voters to Donald Trump and the Republicans? It is immigration and political correctness or wokeness. It would be smart of Democrats to DROP THOSE ISSUES which are the reason why their brand is so toxic with White working class voters in rural areas who have traditional values who would otherwise agree with them on things like raising the minimum wage and health care. That’s why the big things that Democrats want are not going to ever happen. Similarly, Republicans have the same issue with health care and their horrible economic agenda.
