One in three adults to avoid talking politics over holiday season

Nearly one-third of all adults will actively avoid political conversations when they see friends and family over the Thanksgiving and December holidays, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Friday. About half said they do not expect to discuss politics at all.

The Nov. 8-13 poll found that a majority of Americans consider politics to be among their “least favorite” topics to discuss in mixed company over the holidays.
