A Uniter, not a Divider

(via MyDD)

On Donkey Rising David Gopoian reports on a study by the University of Michigan on the 2004 elections. On a scale of 0 to 100, Kerry was rated 72 by Democrats (about typical) but only 32 by Republicans. That's the lowest rating Republicans have given the Democratic candidate ever; even McGovern got a 38. More surprising still was Bush's ratings: He received a rating of 84 among Republicans (beating even Reagan), but only 29 among Democrats. Among Republicans, Bush got the highest rating of any President since the survey began, but among Democrats, he got the lowest rating ever.

It appears that the country is more polarized than ever.
