President Biden’s campaign pledge of “unity” is not looking good according to a new University of Virginia poll finding the country is more divided than ever.
Per the NY Post:
More than half of all voters who backed Donald Trump in last year’s presidential election say they “somewhat agree” with the proposition that red states should break away from the US, while, 41 percent of Biden voters “somewhat agree” with the idea of blue states doing the same thing, according to a new poll
The shocking survey from the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics found a quarter of Trump voters say they “strongly agree” with the idea of red-state succession, while 18 percent of Biden voters back a blue state breakaway.
“The divide between Trump and Biden voters is deep, wide, and dangerous,” Center for Politics Director Larry Sabato said in a statement. “The scope is unprecedented, and it will not be easily fixed.”
The survey, which was taken in late July and early August and surveyed more than 1,000 Trump supporters and 1,000 Biden backers, makes for alarming reading for those concerned about political differences in America.
For example, at least 80 percent of Trump and Biden voters somewhat agree that elected officials from opposing parties represent “a clear and present danger to American democracy” (80 percent of Biden voters, 84 percent of Trump voters).
In addition, at least three-quarters of Trump and Biden voters somewhat agree that Americans who “strongly support” the opposing party are “a clear and present danger to the American way of life” (75 percent of Biden voters, 78 percent of Trump voters).
