Over on the Member Feed, Colin B Lane asks if we’ve reached a point where the ideological chasm between liberals and conservatives is so deep that we’re essentially living in two different realities. Here’s an interesting geographical cognate from the Guardian:
There is one Republican governor left in New England: Paul LePage of Maine, and one Democratic governor in the old south: Mike Beebe of Arkansas. LePage only won 38% of the vote in 2010 and would have lost had his competitors not split the vote. Polling shows he’s incredibly vulnerable in 2014. Beebe is required by term limits to step down in 2014, and Republicans are favored to win his seat.
