In Red and Blue America, there is a totally different view of what makes America what it is, and no mechanism exists to unite those positions.  In fact, the current media landscape works in the opposite direction.  It may be helpful to revisit the era of yellow journalism and the penny press.  Fox News and Breitbart are the modern version of that tradition, and have fully weaponized it in its modern form.  They are fully targeted on their audience, and only that audience.  MSM is disavowed, so any rebuttal is ignored and, hence, meaningless.  With the exception of real, live shared activities (work being the most common), the two camps rarely interact.  Given that, how is unity ever achieved?

If your house keeps being clobbered by storms, if the economy flirts with disaster every time you elect Republicans, and if you die of old age, maybe your voting stance will change.  They aren't stupid.  They are stubborn.

Yes, that will be slow.  You'd have to be patient.
That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.
