It’s not just politicians in Washington who bicker and squabble. Average Americans encounter incivility more than twice a day on average (2.4 times) according to the fourth annual study on Civility in America: A Nationwide Survey.
Has incivility reached crisis proportions? 70 percent of Americans think so. So who the most responsible? Politicians and young people are pointed to as common culprits, but according to this year’s survey, for the first time since the survey began in 2010, the Internet/social media has risen into the top ranks of perceived causes of incivility.
