    • News

Josep Colomer explains why political polarization and infighting are so rampant in the United States. The framers of the Constitution designed it with more "checks" than "balances," making it far easier to stop rather than pass legislation. The framers did not anticipate how the two-party system would emerge and weaponize the mechanisms they created. Yet a few simple measures can go a long way in alleviating the worst of polarization.
