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.
