America’s large and divided political center demonstrates lower levels of partisanship, predictability, and political involvement than its left and right, according to Beyond Red vs. Blue: The Political Typology,  a report released by the Pew Research Center  as part of a MacArthur-supported series on political polarization. The report finds that the 36% of Americans who are highly partisan constitute 43% of registered voters and 57% of the more politically involved citizens. Pew categorizes Americans according to their attitudes and values on the basis of a nationwide, 10,000-person survey.
