Quarter of Americans believe it’s time for U.S. to split into separate red, blue countries
Proposals have called for essentially giving Democrats and Republicans their separate states and countries.
The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
A sizable percentage of U.S. voters support a proposal to split the country into two separate countries — amid bitter political divides, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.
Twenty-five percent of respondents back "splitting the red states and blue states into separate countries."
A very solid majority, 62%, oppose such a measure.
Political divisions in the U.S. have become even more bitter and divided in the wake of the 2020 election, won by Democrat Joe Biden in a close contest and amid concerns about voting irregularities in the U.S.'s election process.
