Democrats, furious that President Donald Trump opposed and often defeated their leftist ideologies while in the Oval Office, repeatedly told the American public that he was dividing the nation and that their candidate in 2020, Joe Biden, was the great uniter.
Some voters during that election may have bought that claim, but probably no longer.
A new poll shows that a significant majority of Americans say Biden is a great divider, that he’s actually creating divisions across the nation with his constant rhetoric attacking the 74 million who voted for Trump.

The poll is from the Convention of States Action, which worked with the Trafalgar Group, to survey more than 1,000 likely 2022 election voters from Sept. 2-5.
A total of 58.7% said Biden had divided the nation during his time as president, while only 20.6% say he’s “unified” it.
“Joe Biden came into office assuring us that the adults are now back in charge and that he is the man to unify the country,” explained Convention of States President Mark Meckler.
“He has done the exact opposite, and voters see that clearly. Joe Biden is perhaps the most divisive president in U.S. history.”
He continued, “Div[id]ing the electorate may work politically in the short-term, but it’s dangerous and crippling for the nation. It’s one thing to attack a candidate who is your political opponent. It’s wholly different to attack 50% of the electorate and expect that it will not divide the country.
“President Biden is uniquely dangerous in his broad attacks on every single American who disagrees with him. This November, we need leaders who will think about the country, not a party.”
It would be expected that Republicans believe Biden is a divider, and 92.5% said that is the case.
They were joined by 64.1% of independents who believe “Biden has divided the country during his time as president.”
Even 17.9% of Democrats from Biden’s own party say he’s divided the nation. Not even a majority of the members of that party say he’s unified America, with only 43.6% in that category.
