This is why the notion that we are a “more divided country” because our POTUS races are so close is false.

Occasionally someone (almost always from the left) moans something like “Washington is gridlocked, our system is broken.”

My response is always the same “Our country is politically divided. Our system is DESIGNED to go into gridlock when there’s no consensus. Our system is working perfectly.”
