In discussions with my friends I know that many people think you can’t date someone with different political views than you because it reflects their values but I don’t think this is necessarily the case.
I just recently met a guy who has 1000000 good qualities but we definitely have opposing political views.
However, with the current political state in America, I think that people, particularly millennials, have become very comfortable about discussing politics…
Among the respondents, there was a nearly even split between Republicans, Democrats, and Independents.
While only 61 percent of participants voted in the presidential election, they still had some pretty strong feelings about the current political state.
The survey found that if the running were between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, millennials were 72 percent for Clinton and 28 percent for Trump. If you and a partner or someone you're on a first date with disagree over who you support in the 2016 presidential election, could your relationship actually be doomed? It would seem that indifference concerning politics is a reason for couples to call things off. Go in and vote together, then leave your beliefs in the ballot box.
According to the surveys results, one millennial, Julie Geissert, 29, broke off a month-long relationship after her boyfriend used the term “liberal pieces of sh*t” while flipping through TV channels and stumbling on presidential election coverage. However, the majority of those polled said they would still date somebody with different political beliefs, which is the way it should be, if I do say so myself. Don't let a politician have a say in who you date as well!
I like to learn why people feel the way they do about different political topics and I often learn more about different issues when having these discussions.
