Stanford University’s Department of Political Science is dedicated to understanding and explaining politics. Presently, American politics is hyperpolarized, which has led to gridlock in government. In light of mass polarization, the department seeks to execute long-term research on the linkage of individuals’ web browsing behavior with measures of party polarization. Over the course of the Trump administration, department researchers will use a national sample of registered voters to hopefully uncover the relationship between online exposure to partisan media and standard indicators of partisanship.
