To test people’s degree of perceived threat, the survey asked them how much they agree with the statement, "The world is becoming a more and more dangerous place." For example, a full 81 percent of the population―including Devoted Conservatives, who tend to be the most skeptical when it comes to questions of race―agrees that racism continues to be an at least somewhat serious problem in the United States. This revealed seven groups of Americans―what we call Hidden Tribes―with distinctive views and values. Although they appear in the middle of our charts and graphs, most members of the Exhausted Majority aren’t political centrists or moderates. In both instances, the wing segments are outliers.

On the Internet, social media has become a hotbed of outrage, takedowns, and cruelty—often targeting total strangers. Americans have real differences and real disagreements with each other. For example, people who deem it more important for a child to be "well-behaved" than “creative” are more likely to endorse an authoritarian ethic. When people today speak about how Americans seem to hate each other, they're usually talking about the opinions and behaviors of the Wings. La France en quête website, December 2019 For the two Conservative tribes, the Traditional Conservatives and the Devoted Conservatives, immigration is frequently framed as an issue of immigrants defying laws, the government losing control of borders, and doubts about immigrants’ loyalty to America.

Everyone appears to have a varying version of world events, and it feels harder than ever to sort fact from fiction. Desire for compromise split by Wings and Exhausted Majority. Those who attribute more importance to circumstance, a defining feature of Progressives Activists, are 30 percentage points more likely to believe that racism needs to be taken more seriously and that Black Lives Matter has brought attention to important issues. However, more than three in four Americans also believe that our differences aren’t so great that we can’t work together. Some people believe that individuals should get credit for their successes because they were caused by factors within their control. Progressive Activists (8 percent of the population) are deeply concerned with issues concerning equity, fairness, and America's direction today. Their distrust and fear of the opposing side drives many of the people in these groups, and they have especially negative opinions of each other. Stephen Hawkins, Hidden Tribes: A Study of America’s Polarized Landscape, More in Common, 2018. On the other side, Progressive Activists belong in the Wings, but Traditional Liberals belong in the Exhausted Majority. Nobody wants simply to turn the clocks back, because there was a lot that wasn't right about the world of the past.

There is far more common ground among Americans than we might imagine, judging from the constant conflict among pundits, politicians, and social media users. In contrast, the remaining two-thirds of Americans at the center show more diversity in their political views, express less certainty about them, and are more open to compromise and change—even on issues that we all tend to consider highly polarizing. More fundamentally, the country is evenly divided on whether our changes in attitudes towards sex and sexuality are making America "more accepting and tolerant" or whether they are simply causing "America to lose its moral foundation". Indeed, more than half of Americans say that there is "pressure to think a certain way" about gay, lesbian and gender issues. We also aimed to understand why people held the positions they did through a specially designed series of questions that helped us identify people’s core beliefs about the world―questions about their identity and the basic values and beliefs that influence the way people see the world.

Today's polarization reflects a perfect storm: Unsettling changes in our economy and society have left many Americans feeling like strangers in their own land. They share a deep sense of gratitude that they are citizens of the United States. Moderates (15 percent of the population) are engaged in their communities, well informed, and civic-minded. Progressive Activists are the only segment in which a majority thinks that the threat of terrorism is not that serious—a view they hold at three times the national average. Four out of five Americans believe "political correctness has gone too far in America"—a issue where most Americans with liberal views agree with Conservatives, again showing America is so much more than two tribes. In addition, people with the most extreme views are often the most certain of their positions. Care/Harm: Protecting the vulnerable and helping those in need. But it is distorting how we see each other, fracturing our society, and adding to distortions in our political system that give undue weight to the most extreme views.

Meaningful differences in viewpoint persist between white and black Americans on key questions, especially regarding police brutality towards African Americans. I imagine that many will dismiss a study like this out of hand, but for me the fact that someone as loathsome as Donald Trump was able to (technically) win the presidency lends a lot of credence to it. Furthermore, 60 percent of Americans believe that white supremacists are a growing threat in the United States. All rights reserved. MiC Report. Meanwhile, Devoted Conservatives are an outlier as the only group for whom a majority attributes terrorism to religion rather than to individuals: they are more than twice as likely to say that "some religions teach violence and extremism" rather than that "violent people use religion as a justification for their actions." The Wings are also the most unified internally. We question each other’s character. Loyalty/Betrayal: Standing with one’s group, family or nation.

Others believe that outcomes are mostly the result of external forces. Subjects' concern about each of the foundations closely tracks their views on other issues.

For the two liberal tribes (Progressive Activists and Traditional Liberals), the same immigration issues are perceived through the lens of racism, human rights, refugee protection, and the positive value of a diverse society. While the story of the Wings may be one of division and conflict, a very different story is found in the rest of America. Instead of helping us find solutions to move us all forward, politics is driving us apart. When people talk of tribalism or “us versus them,” they often think in binary terms—there are two groups, two tribes. The Hidden Tribes report confirms those findings.
