Is America a divided nation? Tonight on Hannity, Sean welcomed a studio audience to weigh in on the most controversial issues facing the United States. The segment started off with members of the audience shouting out, on a scale of one to ten, how divided they think the country is.

Noelle Nikpour, a Republican strategist, answered '10' because "Barack Obama, when he got to be president, immediately started on class warfare. [...] Our nation is more divided ever since he took president. I think it's one of the worst things that's ever happened."
Fox News contributor Deneen Borelli criticized the president for not being a leader. "He has injected the race card, the child welfare card, the grandma card -- anything to push his big government agenda."
Americans for Prosperity member Jennifer Stefano said it's not Americans who are that divided, but rather it's President Obama who is "bringing out the worst in us."
Jehmu Greene, a Fox News contributor, criticized those responses, saying "they are living outside of reality."
She argued that it's not that the country is more divided, but in today's world there are more platforms for people to express their opinions in a public way.
Hannity asked Greene if it's divisive when the president says that Republicans want dirty air and water. When she blamed Republicans in Congress for not governing, Hannity shot back, "You're giving me a lecture."
Entrepreneur Liliana Gil Valletta was more hopeful about the future. She said, "The people that are in position of power right now are [...] boomers. And then you have the Millennials who are highly diverse, almost 50 percent of them are multicultural in nature, who think differently. I think it's going to take another generation to take positions of authority and power [...] for us to really get into a united America."
