America Divided

An independent national poll from Two Paths America conducted over the past two years shows that political and racial divisions are the most serious problems facing the country.

Fortunately, more than 70 percent of voters believe America can heal today’s divisions, and they are not counting on elected officials, media, or community leaders to drive that change.

The top two solutions to putting aside differences, each garnering more than 90 percent agreement, was capturing the same spirit when Americans put aside their differences to help one another during a natural disaster, and breaking party allegiances to put country over party and come together as Americans.

The Two Paths America poll and focus groups were conducted by Brilliant Corners and The Tarrance Group. Focus groups were held in Atlanta, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Columbus and Orlando.
