More Voters See A Divided Nation, Blame Trump

Most voters still see America as a divided country and think President Trump is chiefly to blame.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 60% of Likely U.S. Voters now think America has become a more divided nation since Trump’s election.  Just as many (59%) felt that way in June 2017, five months after the president’s inauguration. Only 11% say the country has become less divided since then, while 26% see the level of division as about the same. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
