We Really Are a Fractured Nation

Fractured Nation is the title of the latest report on American values released by PRRI (the Public Religion Research Institute). The title aptly describes the findings of PRRI's August-September 2019 survey of the public's attitudes about a variety of important issues. Here's a look at some of the fractures by political party identification...

Percent who mostly/completely agree with statement...

Democrats  Republicans
Society as a whole has become
too soft and feminine
    26%      65%
These days society seems to punish men
just for acting like men
    23      53
Today discrimination against whites has become
as big a problem as discrimination against
blacks and other minorities
    21      69
Immigrants are invading our country and replacing
our cultural and ethnic background
    20      63
It is necessary to believe in God in order to be moral
and have good values
    35      55
