Partisanship: More About Dislike Than Loyalty

Vox looks at a study by two political scientists who have discovered partisanship has more to do with dislike of the other side than liking one's own.

They may very well be right, I mean, correct.

I've noticed for some time that, both here and in comments to news articles, most seem more interested in running down the other party, or its members, rather than trying to promote their own party.

Even when talking to fairly partisan folks, when I point out something about their party or candidate, the usual response is along the line of, "Yeah, but you don't want those guys to win".

This does not just pertain to dem-rep differences. Tonight's Republican debate is having some difficulties with greenroom placements.

Seems your boy Paul (and Christie) have been banished to restrooms. RNC has some esplaining.

I don't know where you come off thinking Christie is "my boy". Regardless, I won't be watching the debates. I feel it's beneath me.

I agree with their findings. We are always stuck voting for the least of two evils, so that no matter what, an evil wins. Two wings, same bird.
