HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — You should keep your opinions about grandma’s cooking — and your political thoughts — to yourself this Thanksgiving. And, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University, that’s what most voters intend to do.
About 61% of voters want to avoid discussing politics at the Thanksgiving dinner table, according to the poll. However, the same poll found that 29% of voters want to share their political opinions.
How has that changed? Not much, according to the results. About 59% of voters answered that politics in the U.S. over the last year hasn’t changed if they feel comfortable discussing their opinions. About 30% said it’s changed for the worse, and 9% said it’s changed for the better.
