Rigid Partisans, Flexible Ideologues

It’s no secret that our partisanship affects how we view the world. Political science has hundreds of findings supporting this conclusion.

The events of the past year, and particularly the past few months, have served as a test of this theory, and, so far, we haven’t found the limit. CONT.
