Nearly three-quarters of Americans said the United States is as divided as it was during the Vietnam War according to a new poll.

Results from the survey released by The Washington Post and the University of Maryland indicate:

  • 70 percent said divisions within the U.S. are at least as big as they were during the Vietnam War.
  • 77 percent of U.S. adults aged 65 and older said the current divisions stateside are at least as big as they were during Vietnam, with 65 percent of adults aged 18-29 saying the same.
  • 36 percent said they are not proud with how democracy works in the U.S., a sharp increase from 1996 (16 percent), 2002 (9 percent), 2004 (10 percent), and 2014 (18 percent) in similar polls.
  • 64 percent said the political system in the U.S. is dysfunctional.
  • 71 percent said problems with American politics have reached a dangerous low point.

Another recent poll found that the political divide in the U.S. also exists within each of the main political parties.
