You think there is a new majority of moderate Republicans and/or with Democrats? Sorry, it was moderate Rs that lost and more strident left-wing Ds were elected. This suggests more polarization—not less. This post contradicts your own thread on it being difficult to get things done in the House. I think you need to make up your mind.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
