A recent survey of more than 3,000 Americans found that Democrats view Republicans largely as racist, bigoted and sexist.

The survey, conducted by Axios, showed that 61 percent of Democrats saw the GOP in a negative fashion, and a combined 9 percent saw Republicans as "fair," "thoughtful" or "kind."

Republicans, too, seemed to view Democrats in a similar light, with 54 percent of those surveyed saying their counterparts are "spiteful" and 49 percent as "ignorant."

Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce said Monday that Americans aren't as divided as the media portrays them to be.

Bruce said that presenting opposing political parties against one another just makes for more "exciting" media content.

"The larger media conversation is constantly demonizing," she said. "It is about presenting the worst case scenario."

She said that Republicans must try to push back on the Democrats' view about who they are.

"You don't want to just judge people based on what they say. You have to judge them based on what they do," she added.

She said that President Trump is constantly attacked on the subjects of race and treatment of women, yet statistics show his administration has improved African-American and female employment.
