Poll: 3-in-4 White Democrats Find It ‘Stressful’ to Talk to Trump Supporters

Three-in-four white Democrats and left-leaning Americans find it “frustrating” and “stressful” to talk politics with people who have a different opinion of President Trump, according to a Pew Research poll released Thursday. While more than half of Americans find it stressful talking to people they disagree with on Trump, white Democrats were the most likely to find it uncomfortable — much more than Republicans of any race.

The findings are from a June 27-July 9 survey, which polled a representative sample of more than 2,500 Americans on political behaviors following Trump’s election.

    If you are an idiot and have no ability to debate, like say muslims, you would naturally be stressed if put to the test.

    OMG, it’s just like Nazi Germany.

      I have spent so much time on 4chan/pol/ that I can no-longer tell if living in Nazi Germany is unironically good or unironically bad.
      Please help me!

    I don’t understand why blacks are down on Trump, since immigration enforcement is very beneficial for them, particular in the jobs arena.

      Why are gays down on him when he has been the most gay friendly president ever in that he was for gay marriage when everyone else was saying what a radically dumb idea it was?
      Why are Jews down on him when half his kids are married to Jews and one even converted?
      Why do the feminists hate him when he has more female advisors than any other president?
      They hate him because it’s communicated to them to hate him by the popular media and every arm of leftism that there is in an unrelenting drumbeat of manufactured feelings that intelligent, sophisticated, and moral people should feel, even though the facts of what he actually does say otherwise.
      Why do the liberals hate him when he is the least “conservative” republican president that we have ever had?
      It’s all a game. A show. An orgy of virtue signaling for shallow people desperate to show how sophisticated, erudite, and moral they are when they are in fact none of those things. They are sheep, incapable of original thought and could just as easily be liking Justin Bieber it it were communicated to them would make them look cool.

        The lib media runs the western world. The last six months of the Trump administration has illustrated how scribblers define how every issue is seen and discussed.

        Yes, all they get is fake news and just blatant lies concerning Trump. I constantly run into this in Canada with people who share pretty much the same values as I do, especially concerning Trudeau short-pants, Muslims and mass immigration but who go off the rails when Trump is the subject. So you want stressful, that is stressful since I have neither the time nor the energy to spare to set them right. It happened just yesterday when I had my truck in for a regular service. I was outside in the shade having a smoke while waiting when a couple of my age asked to join me. I quickly found out we had the same views about Muslims, immigration, multiculturalism and idiot Trudeau. Then the fellow added that it was even worse in the US with Trump who has done nothing in his first six months except spend him time tweeting nonsense. I just said well my concern is my own country and returned to our own situation. Neither the fellow nor his wife were ignorant people and certainly not leftist, but their option of Trump is based on the lies and propaganda of the MSM.

          There is some knee-jerk anti-americanism in Canadian lefty circles. An ex- brother in law used to rant about America and the dreaded “multi-nationals” until I actually asked him to explain the reasons for his hatred of all things American. He’d come up with asinine “imperialist” nonsense and quickly change the subject.

          I was in a class today and the instructor was talking about a fact, he paused and said it’s a real fact because it was never reported on CNN.

          I’m in a class on the failures of a particular piece of equipment, so nothing political. You know CNN is done when average people make from of them.

    • Many black Americans have favourable opinions of Trump.

      I’m sure the Democrats have some antiquated terms for those guys.

      They find it stressful when dealing with people who base their opinions on facts as opposed to feelings.

      • WalterBannon

        they find it stressful to come up with any rational argument to support their position

    So is this story about the Democrats, related to the story about the low sperm count?

  • Mental midgets who are constantly hurt by oxygen find most things stressful.
