The media makes it easy to think that Americans are more divided than ever. Whether it be because of coronavirus, politics, or civil rights, it seems like there’s division at every turn.

But Americans are actually getting along pretty well with each other, according to a recent poll.

Right now, 74% of voters nationwide believe that Americans generally get along with one another. 21% disagree, and 5% aren’t sure. In terms of political demographics, 91% of Republicans, 71% of Independents, and 63% of Democrats also agree that Americans get along pretty well with each other. 

Scott Rasmussen talks getting along, and Hamilton, in his new Number of the Day podcast.
