Under Trump, Voters See A More Divided Nation. But Who's To Blame?

Voters see a more divided America since Donald Trump was elected president, but they don’t put all the blame on him.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 55% of Likely U.S. Voters believe America is more divided since President Trump’s election, while 14% think it’s less divided. Twenty-eight percent (28%) feel the level of division is about the same as it was before Trump’s presidency. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
