The constituents who represent the second largest group responsible for the BIG DIVIDE are also victims; some are too naïve, too gullible to understand they are manipulated by the elected officials, others are eternally subscribed to a political Party and yet others believe the alternative is worse. The research suggests that the problem is more pronounced among the Republican constituents than it is in the Democratic circle. This particular observation is best explained by referring to the studies which analyze how members of the two Partys process information. The study suggests that Republicans are unable to process complex life related matters which might help to explain why dispensation of information in very simple terms – however false and misleading – as well as repetition of the information are easily accepted by Republican constituents; by contrast, Democrat constituents are more inclined to question the veracity of statements which do not pass a simple logical test.
