This 2017 Gallup poll may also be of interest to you.

The preference for being willing to compromise is huge and the only group that does not prefer "compromise" over "stick to beliefs" is the very conservative crowd. Liberals prefer it 63 to 14%; moderates 60 to 16%; very liberal 55 to 17%; and even conservative 43 to 27%.

There is quite something of a mismatch. FWIW I think MSM is also structure to reward aggression, or at least covering conflict. It is more exciting and gets more clicks and eyeballs. It's why Trump got so much free media in the 2016 cycle.
