Divided America: Our guide to the fracturing of a nation

By The Associated Press

Ahead of the general election on Nov. 8, we’ve compiled all of the stories, visuals and interactive elements from our Divided America series this year.

Over the past six months, we’ve produced more than two dozen stories that explored the ideological, social, cultural and economic divides in America.

Through the daily lives of ordinary Americans, we examined the tensions and issues underlying the tumultuous 2016 U.S. presidential election, while going beyond the politics of the moment to ask: How will Americans face continued challenges well after a new president has been chosen?

“We are really proud of this work, which is enduring and important journalism,” said Brian Carovillano, AP’s vice president of U.S. news.
