The Polarization of American Politics and Two Party System


Polarisation of American Politics 

  • American politics far more polarised, Trump v Clinton divided the nation 48-51
  • However at times they can be ideologically similar, Bush and Obama both fighting for greater reform of education
  • Americans also far more polarised in terms of policy, republicans blocking gun control in 2013
  • However they can come together in times of crisis, congress backing Bush after 9/11 on anti terror reforms
  • Trump polarises views massi ely, southern states such as Alabama voting for him whereas california dosen't
  • However at times the nation can rally behind a certain politician, Bush after 9/11
  • The media also massively polarises views, Fox news always conservative whereas CNN more left
