Look who’s talking now

The divide among Americans over the issue of Trump’s truthfulness may be reinforced by how often they engage in political discussions with people of different political persuasions.

Nearly half of Americans (48 percent) talk about politics with someone they disagree with at least once a week. Two in 10 (21 percent) say they almost never talk politics with people they disagree with.

Americans are split on the value of having these conversations. Half of Americans (51 percent) generally find the experience to be stressful and frustrating, while almost half (45 percent) find these discussions to be interesting and informative.

Partisans are more likely to believe the experience is stressful and frustrating, while independents are more likely to find the experience interesting and informative.

Americans who view these discussions positively are more likely to engage in these types of conversations regularly. Those who find the experience interesting and informative are 13 percent more likely to engage in these conversations weekly than those who find them stressful and frustrating.

Notably, a quarter (26 percent) of those Americans who find these conversations to be stressful and frustrating almost never engage in them.
