New study finds liberals are less tolerant than conservatives

StaffRebel Columnist

A new poll by PEW Research has found that leftists are far less tolerant than their right-wing counterparts.

Just in case you haven't figured it out by now: the left still can't get over Donald Trump and his supporters.

According to the poll, about a third (35 per cent) of Democrats and Democratic leaners say that, if a friend had voted for Trump, it would put a strain on their friendship. Meanwhile, only 13 per cent of Republicans said the same if their friend voted for Clinton.

In addition, the report adds:

“Liberal Democrats are about evenly divided between saying say their friendship would be strained (47%) if a friend said they voted for Trump and saying it would not have any effect (51 per cent). Far more conservative and moderate Democrats say a friend voting for Trump would not have any effect (73 per cent) than say it would put a strain on the friendship (25 per cent).”

Infowars points out that liberal intolerance actually increases with more education. The PEW study states:

“[T]here is a 17-percentage-point gap between the share of Democrats with a college degree or more education (44 per cent) and the share with no more than a high school education (27 per cent) saying a friend voting for Trump would put a strain on the friendship.”

Me Notyou, your posts about putting bullets in Liberals etc… is highly offensive, and I think you are a miserable troll.

Me notyou….if you’re going to keep making the statements you have been posting, at least have the conviction to use your actual name.

All the more reason to put bullets in liberals.

I mean we’re supposed to kill the intolerant, the racists, the Islamophobes, and the homophobes, right?

Today’s liberalism has mutated into a dementia…

Elton said, “And what does this tell us about academia (that we don’t already know)? The more education, the more intolerance.”

Maybe that is why it is always the left that is using violence to shut down free speech at universities and events where conservatives are set to speak. The left cannot tolerate people having a different view from themselves.

The left is far less tolerant that the right (generally speaking).

Based upon the comments I see here from the socialist trolls, and on the comments on other sites both left leaning and right leaning, and based upon Twitter comments, this article is correct.

I didn’t need PEW Research Centre to confirm what I already knew!

Andrew Stephenson, in case you missed it, you posted comments on Rebel Media, a troll who loses track of herself – now that is delicious! Hey if you have a problem with comments on Breitbart get your ass over to that site and describe how hideous you find the comments.

The comment section in that story on Breitbart is hilarious. The full hideousness of conservative outrage spilling all over a story saying how tolerant and benevolent they are. The irony is delicious.

You must agree or libtards will un-friend you.
