In many narratives about U.S. politics, partisanship is portrayed at an all-time high. Yet periods of intense rivalry have been part of our political system since its inception and are a staple of the electoral process. This panel will examine the factors contributing to today’s political divide and the policy areas where these divisions may be set aside for the good of all citizens.

  • How much of the divide is perception vs. reality?
  • What factors feed partisanship, and how can they be overcome?
  • What policy areas offer elected officials the best opportunities to reach consensus?
