"I can't imagine that anyone who would vote for Hillary Clinton would end up voting for McCain. If you look at the issues, there's a huge divide between Hillary and McCain," Peffley said.

Can I replace divide with 'gap'?

Thanks in advance!
but divide can also mean difference
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Optilang, are you saying gap doesn't imply different? I thought difference was the only figurative meaning for the two words.
I agree
Thanks, Optilang!
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
"Divide" is slightly more formal than "gap."
Thanks, Ddms. That's new to me.
