PTE Re-tell Lecture 真实讲座练习题:美国选民比以往更分散

在PTE中,无论是Summarise Spoken Text 还是 Re-tell Lecture的考题大都是从真实的讲座或者演讲中截取的,中间经常经常夹杂很多不同的环境音.很多同学都反映有时未必是听不懂,而是听不到. 鉴于此,墨尔本文波雅思PTE专门为大家总结了真实讲座的PTE练习音频,相比新闻音频来说,整体更加接近PTE考试的真题,内容方面,我们也会为大家提供考试中存在的近似题,最近我们会持续更新,敬请期待!

Pu’s done quite a bit research in the last 25 years, they do this value study, they’ve updated 14 times and in 2014, they issued a report that’s called the Polarization in American Public. And one of the things they cited, there is a couple of points I want to leave you with. First is the number, the percentage of voters in America who had identified solely and extremely with the liberal or conservative view is doubled from 10 to 21%, exactly that are too likely voters and it’s a bigger part of the elector, but what really got me was that the percentage of voters who believe that the other party that they are opposed that they threatened the wellbeing of the nation, that’s the wording of the question, the wellbeing of the nation, that percentage is doubled from 37% of the republicans felt that way in 14 and 27% of democrats. That’s over 60% of the voters, 6 in 10 Americans think that the other party should they get complete control would threaten of the very foundations of the country the wellbeing. I am not even one of them. But 6 in 10, so we start with a very small, narrow path if you want to talk about who’s swinging voters, who is actually persuadable and who switches. I’m not saying they don’t exist, but if you looked at 20 years, we got more polarized and it had nothing to do with gerrymandering took place after 2010.
