Pew survey finds sharp erosion of center as partisan animosity has ‘gotten more

2 posts in this topic

In an interesting study about political polarization, I found an odd statistic that might be of interest to UP folks:

 

"Eight in 10 consistent liberals said they would prefer living in a community with smaller houses closer together where they can walk to schools, restaurants and stores. Just one in five consistent conservatives said the same."

 

I was a little surprised to find such a partisan skew on housing choice.

That surprises me. I know tons of conservatives that prefer dense neighborhoods. I guess it is just self selection on my part. You tend to surround yourself with people similar to you.
