Chart Of The Day: Americans View Members Of The Opposite Political Party As Threats to The Nation Edition

After reading the results of this Pew Research Center Poll, it would be fun to make a snarky comment about Democrats and Republicans just not being that into each other, but this split seems a bit too serious for snark.

Andrew Sullivan contends the nation is in a cold civil war. At times Sullivan tends toward hyperbole; however, if over a third of Republicans believe Democrats are a threat to the nation's well being while over a quarter of Democrats feel the same about Republicans, then one must question if the nation has now become a house divided against itself.
