Despite the White House and Joe Biden campaign’s massive push for unity, most Americans see the U.S. is more divided after its first 100 days.
The numbers come from a recent ABC News/Ipsos poll, which found that only 23 percent of Americans feel the country “has become more united” since Biden took office.
A higher figure – 28 percent – feel that the country is more divided, and most blame Biden for the trend:
6 in 10 think Biden is more responsible for the divisions, compared to 34% who say both Biden and Republicans are culpable for sowing division. Only 6% faulted Republicans.
And despite unity comprising a massive priority for the Biden team, nearly half of the country – 48 percent – feel there has been no movement on the question of unity since Biden’s inauguration. 50 percent of Democrats feel this way along with 32 percent of Republicans.
