Chambers’ study concludes on a positive note as he reveals that there is more ground for compromise than originally thought. He reveals that while everyone overestimates the actual amount of polarization, not everyone reacts to it the same way. Strong Conservatives and Liberals fundamentally see the gulf between themselves and the opposition as incredibly wide. Political independents judged polarization the most accurately in comparison to the amount of actual political polarization. This study shows that the nation as a whole, is not fundamentally incapable of seeing eye to eye, and that the general electorate is more of a shade of purple as opposed to strictly divided into red and blue.
