Democrats and Republicans sometimes seem to be living in two different Americas. We analyzed the past seven debates on each side to show which topics are most discussed within each party.

Hope you can see this, because the topic selection by the two parties is truly stunning (keeping in mind, of course, that the various debate moderators have also had a hand in setting debate topics)

2. Color (red to blue) is an indicator of whether Dem and/or Rep discussed issue . . .
