    Politics is increasingly driven, I think, by people’s general sensibilities about life rather than their specific sensibilities about politics That is source of the polarization. It comes naturally to people. They don’t so much need cues from their elites to make sense of things. It’s visceral because preferences come from an understanding of life rather than politics.
