Not as Divided as We Think?
A reporter’s analysis of an Esquire-NBC poll finds that America isn’t as divided as red versus blue Roll Call election maps would have us believe. Tony Dokoupil says there’s a “new American center” that favors gay marriage and legalized marijuana, but also favors offshore drilling and ending affirmative action. It is made up of people who belong to both parties and lead “lives that encompass Duck Dynasty and NPR.”
