On today’s episode of The Daily Signal Podcast, we examine why America is so polarized—or is it? If you were to believe the national news media, our country is more divided than ever. But research from More in Common, an organization focused on building a more united America, suggests there’s hope for the future. We speak with Stephen Hawkins, the global director of research, about the “perception gap” and “hidden tribes” of America.
Plus, it’s been 50 years since President Lyndon Johnson declared a war on poverty. So how are we doing? Genevieve Wood brings us a commentary.
We also read your letters to the editor, and share a good news story about how one simple purchase at Payless Shoes led a family to provide thousands of pairs of shoes for kids in need.
