  Americans are focusing more on politics now than before the last presidential election. The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center shows 52% of Americans are paying more attention to politics since the election of President Trump. That statement is especially true if you’re an American woman: 58% of women say they are more attentive to politics compared to 46% of men. Today on Town Square we’re looking at the Pew study through a local lens.
