A majority of single Democrats looking for a relationship would not consider dating someone who voted for President Donald Trump, according to a recent Pew Research Center survey.
The survey found that about 71% responded that they “probably or definitely would not consider being in a committed relationship” with a Trump voter, 45% of whom say they “definitely” wouldn’t consider it.
Republican and right-leaning respondents weren’t as strongly opposed to the idea of crossing party lines, as 47% said they “probably or definitely wouldn’t be in a relationship” with someone who voted for former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, with 19% saying they definitely would not.
The 2016 presidential election seems to be the sharpest divider among singles in comparison with parties in general, as only 43% of looking Democrats responded they wouldn’t consider a relationship with a Republican and 24% responded they “probably or definitely would not seriously date a Democrat.”
The survey comes in what Gallup called earlier this year the most politically polarized time in its history.
