Current Affairs

Can a polarized public maintain a healthy democracy? It's not just the Congress that is ideologically divided. The Pew Research Center recently documented how the American people have become polarized over the past 50 years. Michael Dimock, President of the Pew Research Center, discusses this ground-breaking study and its implications for the health of our democracy. What can citizens do to create and support effective community dialogues aimed at strengthening social bonds?
