Just breathe and repeat after me,

  • Our echo chamber likely hyperfocuses on what separates, ignoring what binds
  • At any given point in a day, only 1% of Americans are watching Fox News, CNN or MSNBC

Notice anything in this table of most important issues?  Lots and lots of similarity.   The main differences are between R and D and fewer and fewer people identify with either party, with Independents having gone from a minority, 31%, in 2004 to plurality, 49%, in 2023 (Gallup source).

That’s it, end of post.  Just breathe.
