    It means that Democrats are less divisive than Republicans.

    Republicans had made up their minds in advance to be against Obama. And Clinton. Not because of anything they did, but because they weren't Republicans.

    So nothing Obama did or Clinton did (and Clinton carried out a lot of the GOP agenda, on welfare, for example) would have changed their minds.

    Democrats, on the other hand, were willing to give Reagan and Bush the benefit of the doubt in the beginning. So when their numbers dropped, it was because of what they had, Reagan and Bush, had done.

    To be divisive means one has to take some action (or fail to take some action) that is divisive. The only action Obama and Clinton took that the Republicans consider divisive was to place their hands on the Bible and swear to defend the Constitution as president.

    The poll may not have asked that question (hard to ask in a poll), but the actions of the Republicans make all that clear.

    It is not the business of the state to help its citizens get into heaven nor to save them from hell.
