This election year has a lot of people scratching their heads.
Many just can’t wrap their heads around how or why two people who are not that well liked - according to the polls - are the nominees of the major parties.
And it seems that Republicans and Democrats just can’t understand why the people in the opposite party think the things they do.
There’s a new book that looks at how the parties and their supporters are different and tries to help make sense of American politics today.
The book is Asymmetric Politics: Ideological Republicans and Group Interest Democrats, written by David Hopkins and Matt Grossmann.
