Calls for unity cannot hide stark cultural differences inside Democratic Party

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Democrats are even divided about being divided. A recent Gallup poll asked the simple question, "Would you describe the Democratic Party today as united or divided?" Among Democrats, 51% said united, while 49% said divided. They split virtually down the middle. Everyone else sees Democrats as deeply divided. Sixty-seven percent of independents and 78% of Republicans described the Democratic Party that way. Each of the candidates, and especially Biden and Sanders, sells himself as the one who can "unite" the Democratic Party. But the fact is, there's a real possibility that no one can unite the party — and that includes their real opponent, Trump — as November approaches.
