The Atlantic Politics Daily: America’s Divisions May Get a Whole Lot Worse – The Atlantic

Excerpt:

Party affiliation isn’t the only impeachment divide. Women are far more likely than impeachment to consider Trump’s actions worthy of his removal from office. That’s partly because women skew Democratic—but the skew doesn’t explain everything.

THE GOP

So far, there are few cracks. When House Democrats moved to officially vote on launching an impeachment inquiry against Trump last month, the vote was framed in anodyne, procedural terms. Still, not a single Republican went along.

But Republicans publicly staying loyal to the president doesn’t mean they don’t murmur behind…
