New data reveals politics are ruining Thanksgiving

"Can't we all just get along?" 

Pat discussed a new study today that revealed families are so split on politics in America they're cutting their Thanksgiving dinners short by an average of 20-30 minutes. No doubt 2016 was one of the nastiest elections we've ever witnessed as a country and many of our relationships with one another suffered for it. Americans were so split between the candidates during the campaign that it caused marriages and friendships to end, and plenty of political arguments online that caused many people to unfriend on another. Now, political polarization is ruining dinner conversations between families across the nation this Thanksgiving according to data from 10 million cellphones.

The study was conducted by UCLA and Washington State and found that Republicans are more likely to walk out as opposed to Democrats and that the stakes were higher for those who lived in areas with a higher rate of political ads. So swing state families have it especially bad during Thanksgiving.

Is political polarization ruining your holiday?
