While politics may seem more polarizing than ever, there is at least one thing Republicans and Democrats actually agree on — that there is a deep divide within both parties, according to a new poll.
A whopping 75% of Republicans surveyed said their party is divided, while only 24% think that it’s united, according to the NBC News and Survey Monkey poll. As for Democrats, more than half (58%) think their party is fractured, though 40% think there is still common ground.
As for when or if their parties will ever unite again, about 51% of Republicans were optimistic that the party would come together before next year’s midterm elections. Their Democratic counterparts were less hopeful about their own party. According to the poll, only 38% thought the party would be united by the midterm elections and 20% said the division would continue through 2018.
