    It's the "new normal." It means that a previously unfamiliar or atypical situation that has become standard, usual, or expected (http://oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/the%2Bnew%2Bnormal___1). So the "new normal" is that the Republican and Democratic parties are now extremely divided -- nearly unwilling to compromise with the other.
