Some days it seems the political landscape is "us against them" or "left vs. right." Citizens Count, a NH nonpartisan nonprofit, is claiming to dig in and evaluate what’s happening in New Hampshire.
In a two-part series Citizens Count explored the hard data behind the issue of partisanship and discovered the answer is complex.
In the first article, it explored party unity as one measure of partisanship over the past 20 years in the NH Legislature. Generally, the data showed partisanship increasing in the House but not so much in the Senate.
In the follow-up article, Citizens Count looked at such variables as party control and volume of work that might influence the measure of party unity to determine if one party’s leadership increases partisanship.
