Yeah.

From jabber: What the HELL is with this consistent and diametrical 50/50 split? Wasn't there a Civil War, the last time America was this divided about fundamental values and State versus Federal rights?

At least after the previous civil war there was the external appearance of a re-unification.

That is precisely why I am using the phrase "external appearance". I am happy to be viewing the United States of North America from across an ocean.

A whole lot of the "50/50" split is fiction. Most of the polls out there are drawing their samples from biased populations. For example, the "79% of Americans are Against Gay Marriage!" poll that's being quoted again and again was drawn from the heart of the conservative South. Different areas, different views.
