ITHACA, N.Y. — Talking politics during the holidays can turn family gatherings into hostile debates very fast.

Their findings reveal that at this point, extreme polarization becomes irreversible. The team’s predictive model for measuring the behavior of a polarized political group — like the current U.S. Senate — shows that even an attack by a foreign power or another pandemic would not heal the political divide.

“Instead of uniting against a common threat, the threat itself becomes yet another polarizing issue,” says lead author Michael Macy, director of the Social Dynamics Laboratory in the College of Arts and Sciences, in a university release.
