Transcript for Neighbors Divided by Political Affiliations
Throughout this campaign, we've heard about swing states, even swing counties, but what about swing next-door neighbors? WE FOUND A community McLean, virginia, facing off like a lot of families and abc's amy robach has one extraordinary street. Reporter: Wrightson drive is a street where neighbors share hugs, bake cookies for one another and have friendly conversations. But they are sharply divided on one major issue, who to vote for. On one side of the street there's sandra buckman for romney and kathleen delano for obama. On the other, it's lucas gallegos for romney and stephanie niedringhaus for obama. It all started here when stephanie decided to put up her barack obama signs supporting the president. Well, her neighbor then countered, putting up signs of their own, supporting romney/ryan starting a bit of a sign war here in this neighborhood, and yet, rema all the neighbors here remain friendly. Whave the same common values, we want a safe country, we want to work. Reporter: But they don't see eye to eye on how to get there. We need to be able to disagree about positions and vote for whomever we want to and not take it personally. But that's why I really get mad with obama. He didn't cross the aisle. Reporter: These neighbors only have to live next door to one another, what happens when the division occurs inside the home? I think they need to see the humanity in the other and focus on that instead of politics. Reporter: Should they start baking cookies for each other. Eye evangelize with cook is. Reporter: Food for thought. AMY ROBACH, ABC NEWS, McLEAN, Virginia.
