      A polarized nation

      How can we measure the polarization of the US? One way is to assume that it is reflected in Congress. There is a measure of the polarization in Congress called the "DW-nominate score" difference between the two parties.  It is indicated below.

      It seems that in the absence of great misery or external enemies, our nation polarizes - in other words it follows typical group dynamics.

      Numbers read off from here and for more information about the DW-nominate score see here.
