NEWARK, NJ — August 10, 2020 — The U.S. has long been divided along ideological lines. Republicans and conservatives are to be found disproportionately in what are referred to as “red” states while Democrats and liberals are in what are referred to as “blue” states. The nation has been even more polarized since the 2016 election, and the 2020 election …
