Likely U.S. voters do not have much hope in President Joe Biden’s ability to unite Americans.

A new Rasmussen Reports phone and online survey found 56 percent of likely voters believe America has become more divided since the election and only 19 percent are “very confident” that Biden will unite Americans.

For what it’s worth, 26 percent say they’re somewhat confident Biden can unite the country.

However, 39 percent say they are not confident at all and 15 percent are not very confident.

Results are obviously partisan among Republicans and Democrat, but 58 percent of voters not affiliated with either major party say the country has become more divided since the election.

It is essentially an even split in who they blame for the division. Thirty-nine percent of unaffiliated voters blame Biden while 39 percent blame his opponents. Nineteen percent are not sure.

Only 12 percent of unaffiliated voters are “very confident” Biden can unite Americans.
