Zusammenfassung

365体育网站Polarisierung gehört seit über zwanzig Jahren zu den am meisten diskutierten politischen Phänomenen in den USA. Doch was zeichnet Polarisierung aus und wo liegen deren Ursachen? Dieser Artikel entwickelt eine Definition von Polarisierung und sieht deren Ursachen in einer Vielzahl von Faktoren, u. a. in der programmatischen Entwicklung der beiden großen Parteien und dem Aufstieg des Populismus, den ideologischen Positionen in Teilen der Gesellschaft, dem Zuschnitt der Wahlkreise und den Regeln und Verhaltensweisen im US-Kongress. Die möglichen Folgen für das politische System der USA werden abschließend erörtert.
