I feel not being polarized is indicative of either ignorance, stupidity, outright evil, or some combination thereof.Wait, like people who are willing to let people of opposing political views marry into their family are this?

We should be careful not to equate the two parties’ roles in contemporary political polarization: the data are clear that this is a Republican-led phenomenon where very conservative Republicans have replaced moderate Republicans and Southern Democrats.
And importantly, as we have seen in other surveys, consistent conservatives like their elected officials to “stick to their positions” rather than “make compromises”; consistent liberals overwhelmingly prefer politicians who make compromises.
To destroy democracy in Guatemala he used American military or paramilitary force in the interests of an enormous American corporation, United Fruit. After employing militarism to serve industrial capitalism for eight years, his pious warning against both seems incredibly hypocritical.
Yet on it has been built a whole tower of adulation of Eisenhower as a far-seeing statesman, above party politics.
Not exactly. Most Democrats would not work with a Republican party that compromised precisely in the middle between the two positions - a compromise in the exact same degree for each party.
the idea that the Democratic Party is extreme to any degree remotely approaching the degree to which the Republican Party is extreme strikes be as blatantly absurdInterestingly enough, if this were a conservative blog you could probably find people with the reverse opinion.

ThinkProgress was able to find 24 states with polls conducted over the last 100 days. The latest polls reveal continued wide support throughout the country, from deeply conservative states such as Wyoming and Texas to swing states such as Ohio and Florida.
The U.S. Senate failed to pass expanded background checks despite support from 81 percent of voters nationally1. Since then, public polling has documented the fall-out for many senators who cast no votes. Five new surveys in states represented by senators who voted against S649 also show huge public support for background checks, even in gunfriendly states like Alaska and North Dakota. But this research goes further than that. It also shows, despite their previous vote, voters strongly supporting their U.S. Senator changing his or her mind. This research shows a path for these Senators to arrive at a different conclusion on background checks.
