Today’s highly polarized politics is the result of decades of asymmetric partisanship in which one party’s success became increasingly reliant on dividing Americans along racial, religious, and cultural lines, while the other party’s success became reliant on balancing the social and economic rights and interests of an increasingly diverse electoral coalition. The Republicans have been better able to enforce party unity, but less able to prevent their party’s extremists from taking control of the party’s nomination processes, while Democrats have struggled mightily to find and exploit sustainable unifying principles and policies, but have been more able to prevent their party’s extremists from taking control of the party’s nomination processes.
