A Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey found that 61 percent of Likely U.S. Voters still believe most politicians these days are more interested in campaigning on what divides us rather than on what brings us together. Just 21 percent say most are more interested in bringing us together. That compares to 78 percent and 11 percent, though, during the 2018 heated midterm elections. Eighteen percent are not sure.
Unlike most political questions in recent years, there’s very little partisan disagreement here. Sixty-four percent of both Republicans and unaffiliated voters think most politicians are more interested in campaigning on what divides us, and 57 percent of Democrats agree.
