Can couples therapy techniques bring together Americans with opposite political views?
Nov 25, 2020 1 min, 20 secs

In a recent Pew Research Center poll, only about one in five registered voters said they share "core American values" with the other party, and about nine in 10 people worried that a victory by the opposition would do "lasting harm" to America.

Asked how they were feeling about the state of the country, some Americans didn't have positive replies. .

"I think our country is more divided than ever," Heather Feshbach said.

And Americans are concerned about the polarization and division in the country.

"I feel like there's not a lot of compassion for us as human beings for each other anymore," Aidan Gianassi said.

Some, like family therapist Bill Doherty, think America is like a marriage, one that's not going well.

And if we expel people from the table because of their political views, we will lose our ability to function as a country," Doherty said. .

Doherty said Americans first need to decide that our democracy is worth saving, and not everybody thinks so. .

Addressing it requires getting each side to take responsibility for their role in the quarrel, Doherty said, but as Dokoupil discovered over two days of talking to voters across the political spectrum, talking about the other side is a hard habit to break?

Asked how Democrats can help heal the divide, she said, "They need to start meeting halfway.".

"I just think they're so self-involved with their own," said Kloin, another Biden supporter.

"I think that we should have health care for all," Gianassi said

"I think people are starting to realize we can't go on this way," Doherty said
