The television program “60 Minutes” convened a group of 12 people in Grand Rapids Michigan during the last presidential campaign, with an even mix of people for and against Donald Trump. This group had very heated debates and disagreements.
“60 Minutes” was surprised to learn that despite their differences the group not only maintained contact after the focus group, they also developed ongoing discussion and relationships.
