Americans who are expecting politics to come up over Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday are not looking forward to it, according to a new poll.
Just two in 10 Americans anticipate they’ll talk politics at the dinner table on Thursday, according to a new poll from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Among those people, 39 percent dread the thought of discussing politics, while 35 percent of Americans are eager to do so.
Roughly half of Americans don’t think the issue will come up at all.
More than half of younger Americans are anticipating they’ll discuss the current political environment over turkey and mashed potatoes, while 40 percent of those 40 and over don’t believe politics will be a topic of conversation.
The poll surveyed 1,070 adults from Nov. 15 to Nov. 19. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.
