The Washington Post reported this week that in recent poll, a higher percentage of democrats approve and republicans disapprove of the work being done by the Obama Administration than any other president. The other president with remarkably disparate approval ratings was determined to be President George W. Bush. Researchers have concluded that the United States has entered one of the most politically polarizing ages that it has ever seen, where Republicans will almost always reject a Democratic president and Democrats will reject a Republican before any laws have been proposed or changes made. This will make it increasingly difficult to find common ground as we work our way out of the worst economic slump in decades.
