A new Gallup poll highlights how the partisan politics in the U.S. has tightened its grip on Americans, widening the rift between two sides that believe and deny the phenomenon of climate change and its potentially catastrophic impact.

While Democrats, the believer of climate change, have shifted to a more extreme position and view the impacts are already here, the Republicans’ denial of the phenomenon has only deepened, with a boost from President Donald Trump, notes Earther.

Contrary to 91 percent of Democrats, who view global warming seriously, 67 percent of the Republicans worry only a little or not at all, writes Gallup Poll.
