This is particularly true for men. As the table below indicates, these gaps are about as large as the gender gap and are bigger than the education gap. There is a thesis put forward by Naomi Cahn and June Carbone that blue families are stronger and more stable than red families.
Take for instance:. But this survey suggests that the divide is not that simple. The partisan gap in marriage, for instance, is 17 percentage points, and the education gap is… 17 percentage points.

Like Cahn and Carbone, he has argued that one reason that upper-middle-class marriages today are more successful than the marriages of working-class and poor couples is that they are more egalitarian. Why is it that Republicans and conservatives generally report more marital happiness and stability than do other Americans?

No Wonder America Is Divided. We Can't Even Agree on What Our Values Mean
Public opinion divided sharply along partisan lines. A CNN national survey found nearly complete polarization among the general population. Ninety-one percent of Democrats opposed the Kavanaugh confirmation, while 89 percent of Republicans supported it. There also was a strong gender gap, with women holding negative views about the nominee and men being more supportive.
