Politically Motivated Violence Concerns a Wide Majority of Americans

Concerns exist among members of both political parties

A wide and bipartisan majority of Americans worry there is increased danger of politically motivated violence in the United States, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Nearly nine in 10 Americans (88 percent) are concerned that political divisions have intensified to the point that there's an increased risk of politically motivated violence in the United States, including over 6 in 10 who are "very concerned."
