Oh I don't care about that. I'm interested in this survey because it suggests that broadcast news made people agree on what things meant, while modern news makes them disagree. That's important and interesting.

See to me that's a bit tangential to the point of the study. The point is that media has either convinced people that the other side are lying to surveys, or given people incommensurate conceptions of political issues. Or both.

Now maybe that was because partisan media told them Democrats secretly favor open borders. Or maybe it changed their idea of what "open borders" means. Either way, that's an interesting phenomenon.

For years I've had Republicans accuse me of wanting "open borders" because I favor more immigration and less intrusive and brutal enforcement.

I think we're observing the phenomenon the survey found! 😊

Nevertheless, I still don't see a reason to wave away the fact that media makes people less able to predict the survey responses of people from the opposing party. It's a very interesting finding.

So what percent of Democrats would you guess actually support open borders?

Very interesting thread. Can people guess the political beliefs of the other side?

Take Republicans: * Republicans believe that only half of Democrats are β€œproud to be American.” Actually, 8 out of 10 are. * Republicans also believe that only 3 in 10 Democrats oppose open borders. Actually, 7 in 10 do.
