Poll: Majority Say the President Who Promised to Unite the Country has Instead Divided It

Published in Blog on September 14, 2022 by Brianna Kraemer

If there’s anything the public can agree upon, it’s that politicians are deceptive and will fake it 'til they make it.

That’s what the majority of voters think of Biden, according to a new poll by Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group—one of America’s most accurate pollsters.

Data shows 58.7% of voters believe that Biden has divided the country during his time as president, just two years after running his 2020 campaign on 'uniting for a better America.' Just 20% think he has unified the nation, which in itself is a startling figure considering the current social, cultural and economic state of America.

“Joe Biden came into office assuring us that the adults are now back in charge, and that he is the man to unify the country. He has done the exact opposite, and voters see that clearly. Joe Biden is perhaps the most divisive President in U.S. history,” said Mark Meckler, President of the Convention of States.

In Biden’s recent Independence Hall speech, he targeted millions of Americans for their political beliefs and asserted they are a danger to democracy, a complete bash against conservatives and an intentional division tactic.

When the people are divided, the politicians have more influence and power. While unity is a desirable state among We the People, it’s our leaders who keep us on edge with each other and name-call others with different opinions. 

“Diving the electorate may work politically in the short-term, but it’s dangerous and crippling for the nation. It’s one thing to attack a candidate who is your political opponent.  It’s wholly different to attack 50% of the electorate and expect that it will not divide the country.  President Biden is uniquely dangerous in his broad attacks on every single American who disagrees with him.  This November, we need leaders who will think about country, not party,” Meckler added.

Among party affiliation, 64% of independent voters joined the Republican ideology that Biden has divided the country during his time as president.

A Trafalgar poll from July shows that even with today's political division, Americans are still united on the principles of Convention of States. 

Term limits, a balanced budget and restraints to the size and power of the federal government – what’s not to unite on in these solutions to government overreach?

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
