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.”
