It's Official: Climate Change Is Now More Divisive Than Abortion | ThinkProgress

According to new polling data from the Carsey Institute, climate change has become the most polarizing political issue of our time.

Survey researcher Lawrence Hamilton polled 568 New Hampshire residents and found that Democrats and Republicans disagree most on climate change — moreso than on abortion, gun control, the death penalty, or evolution. Specifically, 83 percent of Democrats acknowledge that humans are contributing to global warming, while only 36 percent of non-Tea Party Republicans believe the same. Tea Party Republicans are even worse on the issue, with only 23 percent agreeing with the overwhelming scientific consensus on climate change.
