An Analysis of Maguire’s Statements

During Maguire’s segment on “What’s America Thinking,” he shared the following thoughts:

“As Democrats now move into their roles in the House, they’re saying let’s bring people [back together]. No one really wants that. That doesn’t get anything really accomplished for their side to unite America.”

The pollster then stated that politicians on both sides of the aisle ought to tone down their rhetoric.

“It’s kind of a really sad situation that despite people saying that President Trump needs to lower his rhetoric, so do House Democrats … but they won’t.”

Politicians and Unity in America

Various political events over the course of this past year have impacted the existing division in this nation. As of late, last weeks midterm elections served as a very dynamic occurrence.

For months, Republicans and Democrats alike fiercely campaigned to emerge as the victors. Many Americans also speculated as to whether November 6 would engender a red wave or blue wave. In the end, Republicans maintained control of the Senate, while Democrats regained power in the House of Representatives.
