Eugene Weekly Data Blurb 6.22.17

PolicyInteractive has previously reported that conservatives and liberals have more in common than one would think, but the current political climate is seen to be driving increased political polarization. PI asks the question why are some people attracted to the conservative ideology and others attracted to the liberal ideology? What are the issues that are pulling us apart and why? Watch this space for continuing exploration of why “we’re so skewed.”

National survey conducted by PolicyInteractive out of Eugene, OR; 198 Trump voters and 209 Clinton voters; Nonprobability sample; See full results and methodology at
