Study finds Democrats and Republicans actually do live in different worlds

Joshua Holland kicks off this week's show lamenting the fact that the same people who insist on opening everything up and rail against wearing masks are now threatening to keep America from achieving herd immunity by refusing to get vaccinated against Covid-19. 
 
Then we are joined by Ryan Enos, a professor of government at Harvard University, to talk about his granular study on partisan "sorting"--with Democrats and Republicans increasingly living in the same areas. Enos and his colleague created a database with data on where 180 million American voters live.
 
And then we welcome Eli Zupnick, a spokesperson for Fix Our Senate, to discuss the grassroots efforts to... fix our Senate, and in turn, our democracy.
