Most voters believe President Joe Biden has divided the country despite his promise to unite it, according to a survey by Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group.
The survey, obtained first by Breitbart News, found that 58.7% of voters express a belief that Biden has, indeed, divided the country during his tenure. Only one in five say it has unified the country, and another in five remain unsure.
While a plurality of Democrats, 43.6%, believe Biden has united the country during his tenure, that sentiment is not shared by most Republicans or independents. An overwhelming majority of Republicans, 92.8%, believe Biden has divided the country, and 64.1% of independents agree.
The survey was conducted September 2-5, 2022 among 1,000 likely voters in the 2022 election.
The investigation follows Biden’s angry and divisive anti-MAGA rhetoric, in which he openly demonized millions of Americans as a threat to the country itself.
According to Biden, former President Donald Trump and his supporters – the “maga Republicans” – apparently represent “an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic”.
“But there is no doubt that the Republican Party today is dominated, led and bullied by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country,” Biden said emphatically, proclaiming that the MAGA Republicans do not not respect the rule of law, nor the Constitution itself. He even quoted Federal Circuit Court Judge Michael Luttig, who apparently called Trump and his supporters a “clear and present danger” to democracy.
“MAGA Republicans have made their choice. They embrace anger. They thrive on chaos. They don’t live in the light of truth but in the shadow of lies,” Biden bizarrely claimed.
His remarks stand in stark contrast to the theme of his 2020 presidential campaign, in which he tried to convince the American people that he was 100% committed to the concept of “unity”, repeating the word eight times in his speech. inauguration.
“This is our historic moment of crisis and challenge, and unity is the way forward,” he said. saidonly continuing to divide Americans after taking office, first with vaccination mandates and later by targeting “MAGA Republicans.”
