Did Barack Obama bring division to this country?

WASHINGTON (AP) — More Americans feel Barack Obama’s presidency divided the country than feel it brought people together, a new poll shows. Yet he leaves office held in high esteem by a solid majority.

It’s a hard line that defines what my country should be and what it should not be. Stand on one side or on the other. There is no middle ground.
