We live in an increasingly polarized political environment. Partisanship has affected the ability to govern, and both Democrats and Republicans have made maneuvers that have changed how lawmakers legislate. How has the electorate become so polarized? Has it ever been like this before? Can we get back to the days of Tip O’Neill and Ronald Reagan working together? Connecting Point’s Ray Hershel is joined by Political Consultant Anthony Cignoli, WHYN Radio’s Jim Polito, and political observer Suzanne Murphy for a look back at the history of—and fallout from—the ever-increasing partisan divide in America.
