A Country Divided

Abraham Lincoln once said "A house divided against itself cannot stand."  Those words are just as true today as they were then, the problem is though that with each generation we are growing more and more divided as a country.  Democrats grow more and more disenchanted with the views of Republicans and Republicans likewise with Democrats.

If you look at poll data from Nixon through Obama you can see each president grew more and more polarized in opinion polls taken in their first year.

That data shows we are growing more and more partisan with either side growing further and further apart.

How long until our house falls in?
