David, can you discuss subnational polarization not by state but by region: South, North, West?

Great question, Maya! It’s clear to me that Internet interaction is replacing religious participation, especially among younger people. QAnon, though, seems to be especially appealing to people of faith.

Look in Q&A at "open" or "answered" for questions. If you want to answer them live, you can also click that button, which lets everyone see the question.

In fact, there have been some clergy who have been urging their congregations not to fall into the QAnon community.
Laura Olson | Clemson University
01:09:36
That said, there are lots of parallels between QAnon and “new religious movements” (i.e., cults)
David Darmofal | Univ of South Carolina

Aron, thanks for the question. One of the things we’re seeing is some significant in-migration to the South that’s changing states like GA, NC, & TX.

The growth of suburbs filled with young professionals is shifting some of these states in a Democratic direction.

Laura, based on what you were saying, do you not consider that the reason there is a exit of religious value people from the Democrat party is the stance on issue that has been made such as support for abortion. The support of Republican party on religious freedoms, and the way the democrat party has embraced the those that denounce and sometimes insult religion?

So is the South less polarized than the other two regions?
Laura Olson | Clemson University
01:21:40
Brian, 100% yes — which is another part of the partisan sort.
