67 Percent of Americans Can Be Defined as 'Politically Exhausted'

Many believe that Americans are more divided politically today than ever before. But according to a new study, most Americans are simply exhausted with politics.

Researchers examined American voters and broke down the population into seven "hidden tribes." These tribes are basically how Americans look at politics. The seven tribes were Progressive Activists, Traditional Liberals, Passive Liberals, Politically Disengaged, Moderates, Traditional Conservatives and Devoted Conservatives. 

Interestingly enough, the researchers classified four of these groups together as the "Exhausted Majority." Essentially the Exhausted Majority doesn't have strict ideologies, but rather have different views depending on the situation. So while they may agree with Democrats or Republicans on more issues, they don't uniformly accept one party's view. Members of the Exhausted Majority also prefer compromise and hate political polarization in America.

According to these researchers, 67 percent of Americans fit into this Exhausted Majority. Here's a look at the breakdown of the "Hidden Tribes":

What's interesting is that the "Exhausted Majority" skews more to the left than the right. Traditional Liberals and Passive Liberals were both grouped into the "Exhausted Majority" along with the Politically Disengaged and Moderates. Traditional Conservatives and Devoted Conservatives were both listed as "Wing" tribes, meaning their views are far more rigid, they're less open to compromise and they're more extreme than the average American.

Unfortunately, that probably also means a lot more members of the Exhausted Majority are probably turned off from voting in the current political climate, which would explain why the more conservative wings of America's Hidden Tribes are doing so well electorally. 

Of course, we're guessing pretty much everyone who doesn't own a MAGA hat is probably exhausted with politics ever since Trump came into office.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic superstar obsessively derided by Republicans, appeared on the 'Late Night with Seth Meyers' on Thursday to talk about the proposed "Green New Deal," a much-publicized resolution to address climate change and economic instability in the country. The Green New Deal has gotten a great deal of press lately, especially on right-leaning news organizations such as Fox News who claim it will ban everything from air travel to ice cream to cow farts. President Trump had publicly stated his opposition to the resolutions, citing these reasons.
