Partisan polarization remains the dominant, seemingly unalterable condition of American politics. Republicans and Democrats agree on very little; and when they do, it often is in the shared belief that they have little in common.
Yet the gulf that separates Republicans and Democrats sometimes obscures the divisions and diversity of views that exist within both parties, and the fact that many Americans do not fit easily into either one.
Pew Research Center’s new political typology provides a road map to today’s fractured political landscape. It segments the public into nine distinct groups, based on an analysis of their attitudes and values.
Where do you fit in the political typology? Are you a Faith and Flag Conservative? Progressive Left? Or somewhere in between? Take our quiz to find out which group is your best match, and compare your results with a nationally representative survey of more than 10,000 U.S. adults.
