Why is government non-functional. Think about this graph.


• Landslide Democratic districts are those in which the presidential vote was at least 20 points more Democratic than in the country as a whole. (For example in 2008, when the Democrat Barack Obama won the popular vote by roughly seven percentage points nationwide, these districts were those in which Mr. Obama won by 27 percentage points or more.)
• Strong Democratic districts are 10 to 20 percentage points more Democratic than the country as a whole.
• Lean Democratic districts are 5 to 10 percentage points more Democratic than the country as a whole.
• Swing districts are within five percentage points of the national popular vote margin.
• Lean Republican districts are 5 to 10 percentage points more Republican than the country as a whole.
• Strong Republican districts are 10 to 20 percentage points more Republican than the country as a whole.
• Finally, Landslide Republican districts are at least 20 percentage points more Republican than the country as a whole.

Looks like the nation is becoming more divided. The devoted sides increased, all other regions seemed to continuously decrease. Might explain why Congress has so much trouble making an agreement.
