New poll show the deep divides between Trump and Biden voters

from The University of Virginia,

New polls conducted by the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics and Project Home Fire clearly show the deep divides between Trump and Biden voters, as well as opportunities for agreement and compromise. The Center for Politics partnered with Project Home Fire, an organization committed to finding common ground in American politics, to survey 2020 presidential election voters and learn more about their views and the issues that both separate and connect them. In a press release announcing the project, Center for Politics Director Larry Sabato discussed the motivations behind the partnership: “The divide between Trump and Biden voters is deep, wide and dangerous. The scope is unprecedented, and it will not be easily fixed.”

Ninety-four percent and 85% of Biden and Trump voters, respectively, agreed with “modernizing drinking water, wastewater, and storm water systems,” while 92% and 86% agreed with “investing in construction of roads, bridges … and other types of ‘hard infrastructure.’”

Polling found that 56% of Biden voters agreed with the statement “There’s no real difference between Republicans and Fascists,” while 76% of Trump voters agreed with the same statement ending in “… Democrats and Socialists.” Similarly, 80% of Biden voters and 84% of Trump voters agreed with the statement that elected officials in the opposing party present “a clear and present danger to American democracy.”
