A very good showing of division is the FDR Years. We were totally divided from 1933-1941. It was the Wealthy (who hated Roosevelt) and the poor (who loved Roosevelt.) FDR was a great divider (even more than G. W. Bush is considered). FDR alienated entire groups of people, but because these people hated FDR.

The West and South were FDRs strongest bases of support. In South Carolina in every one of his elections he won over 90% of the vote. The Northeast and Midwest had the anti-Roosevelt people.

The nation was very polarized during the New Deal Era. Either you fully supported the New Deal or you fully opposed it; there was no middle ground. The New Deal divided this nation more than anything.
