"As scholars Stephen Hawkins, Daniel Yudkin, Miriam Juan-Torres, and Tim Dixon argue in a report published Wednesday, “Hidden Tribes: A Study of America’s Polarized Landscape,” most Americans don’t fit into either of these camps. They also share more common ground than the daily fights on social media might suggest—including a general aversion to PC culture."

According to a NewsWhip Study The Top Pages on Facebook for political content Conservatives primarily engage with Fox news on Facebook Democrats primarily engage with Occupy Democrats. Among content engagements the numbers are substantially higher for the right Daily Wire content has 132,512,828 engagements on Facebook TheRoot content has 25,826,019 on Facebook These are both the top content producers on Facebook by left and right categories. You can see that conservatives consume substantially more news content than the left. "There are significantly more producers of right-wing content than there are of left-wing content. Only 88 publishers are identified in our leftwing category compared to 357 publishers for the right." "Indeed, the top five for the right-wing significantly outperformed even the leaders in the left-wing category, the top of whom was The Root with nearly 26 million engagements for the year, still fewer than The Daily Caller, which was fifth place for the right-wing publishers." http://go.newswhip.com/rs/647-QQK-704/images/Hyper-Partisan Final.pdf This is also true for Youtube. According to a Source at Youtube News and Politics on youtube is dominated by conservative content There are many left wing producers but their content gets substantially less engagement. There are two main hypotheses as to why this engagement gap exists. (there are more but these tend to be the ones focused on) People associated with the left generally do not search for or share news. They either don't consume news, get news from their friends and word of mouth, or just watch mainstream channels. People associated with the right have few Television outlets for conservative content other than Fox news so they go online and search for news and share news. However the latter doesnt explain how FoxNews is the number one rated cable channel. This would lead us to the conclusion that people associated with the right are significantly more engaged in politics and news than the left. Not only is Fox News the highest rated channel, by some past reports the ratings for Fox News are more than CNN and MSNBC combined. As of 10/6 Fox news has more than Three times the primetime viewership of CNN and MSNBC Combined https://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/scoreboard-saturday-oct-6/380324 Combine this with FoxNews has the highest engaged conservative page, the 2nd highest engaged cable channel producer, and it seems that we could conclude conservatives are substantially more engaged with news and politics than the left. EDIT: According to Nielsen Live +7-day data, in 2017 CNN’s median age was 60, while the median age of the Fox News and MSNBC viewer was 65. https://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/heres-the-median-age-of-the-typical-cable-news-viewer/355379
