“Nine months into the Biden presidency and a new but divided Congress, the political debate in the United States may be going far beyond policy issues, such as money for what has long been a bipartisan favorite, transportation infrastructure. In a new survey, more than half of both Biden and Trump voters view elected officials from the opposing party as ‘presenting a clear and present danger to American democracy.’ More than 40% on each side say the same about anyone who strongly supports the opposing party. These are merely perceptions, of course, but they play out in Washington with attacks on the alleged motives of individual lawmakers.” (10/08/21)
