We Talk: Do U.S. residents think U.S. is facing deepening polarization and divide?

Global Stringer


Republican governors in half of the U.S. have recently openly backed Texas in an intensifying standoff with the Biden administration over illegal immigration. As the recent mass shooting at the Kansas Super Bowl celebration parade again shocked the American public, the political divide on gun control policies in states across the U.S. still shows no sign of narrowing. Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has even called for a "national divorce" in the United States to split the country based on political ideology into "red" Republican states and "blue" Democratic states. So, in the eyes of the American people, is the U.S. facing a widening political split?  

Noah Vargas, a hospitality worker from New York City, said the division stems from the poor handling of the states on social issues like immigration and mass shootings. Healthcare worker Andrew Morris told CGTN that no matter whether Republicans or Democrats are running the states, "they're all ultimately serving the same capitalism that's suppressing everybody."
