Seventy-two percent of voters believe America is more divided than it was four years ago, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll

According to the poll conducted Aug. 9 and 10 of 1,000 likely voters:

  • 72 percent of likely U.S. voters believe America is more divided.
  • 7 percent believe the U.S. is less divided than it was four years ago.
  • 19 percent believe the U.S. is divided the same as it was four years ago.

Along party lines, Republicans as a whole see the country as more divided. Unaffiliated voters agree, and so does a majority of Democrats.

  • 84 percent of Republicans believe the nation is more divided.
  • 77 percent of voters not affiliated with either party see the U.S. as more divided.
  • 58 percent of Democrats see the country as more divided.

A Rasmussen poll in July said that 60 percent of likely U.S. voters believe that race relations have gotten worse since President Barack Obama took office.

Supporters of Donald Trump see the nation as more divided than do Hillary Clinton's supporters.

  • 91 percent of Trump supporters see the nation as more divided.
  • 51 percent of Hillary Clinton's supporters see the nation as more divided.

Slightly more than half of black voters in the poll, 53 percent, believe the nation has become more divided in the last four years ago. However, 75 percent of white voters and 73 percent of other minority voters feel that way.

A different Rasmussen poll showed that 33 percent of U.S. voters believe that the United States is headed in the right direction. It's the highest poll number for whether the U.S. is heading in the right direction since June 2015.
