Survey: 71% of single Dems say it's very unlikely they'd date a Trump voter

Seventy-one percent of single Democratic Party voters said they are very unlikely to even consider dating a person who voted for Republican Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, a new survey finds.

The Pew Research Center study revealed the country’s widening partisan divide has bled into Americans’ dating habits, with 45 percent of Democrats or left-leaning voters outright declaring they “definitely would not” pursue a relationship with a Trump voter. That share is more than double the 19 percent of Republicans or right-leaning respondents who said they “definitely would not” date someone who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. And based purely on party lines, 43 percent of Democrats said they would not likely date anyone who is a Republican, compared to just 24 percent of Republicans who said the same of their liberal counterparts…

Just shy of three-quarters (74 percent) of GOP-leaning voters said they would either consider dating a Democrat or they already have in the past. But that share falls to 51 percent when the question is changed to whether or not they would enter a relationship with someone who voted for Clinton in the last presidential election.
