You don't want the power to split equally.  You
want equal element currents.  Typically, the rear
element receives only a small percentage of the
power thru the coax, being almost parasitic.
Feed the verticals with 1/4 wave lines and get
the voltage at the feed end of the lines equal.
Then the currents will be equal.
