53. I think it started in the 90's.

Post Reagan years and with the emergence of the rw media such as Fox news and a plethora of radio shows.
We democrats did not respond in kind and over the last 25 years, people were gradually brainwashed and got more and more radical.

Gerrimandering is what we usually point out at when describing the challenges we have to retake house seats, I think the more important factor which lead to everything else is the control of the message. Republicans have horrendous agendas, yet they get elected because they are master at messaging and they have an army of propagandist radio hosts and tv networks to reinforce it.

The only way this country will get back at having sane pollitical conversations is if this issue is addressed.
