Donald Trump could make a great president — but singles trying to succeed on the dating scene may want to avoid mentioning his name, a new poll reveals.

Online dating site Zoosk recently surveyed 4,424 singles to gauge whether bringing politics into a relationship typically results in love or war. And the data reveals the upcoming presidential election could have a big impact on love.

"Bringing up Donald Trump's presidential campaign could leave you dateless," a Zoosk spokesperson told Newsmax.

"While 77 percent of respondents stated that they'd likely begin a lengthy, productive conversation about politics if their date brought up Trump's campaign for president, 17 percent said they would run in the opposite direction, with females being twice as likely to run."

The poll also found that women care more about politics than men do.

Women were 20 percent more likely to respond with "very important" and "somewhat important" when asked how important it is to reveal political party affiliation in an online profile or during initial conversations.

In addition, younger men can be easily influenced by their partner when it comes to politics, the Zoosk survey found. Men between 18 and 24 were 20 percent more likely than any other age group to admit to having changed their political beliefs due to a significant other's influence.

According to the poll, 75 percent of respondents — men and women — stated that they do date across political party lines.

As well, daters between 18 and 24 were more open to dating across political party lines. But those over 24 were 20 percent more likely to admit an individual's political party affiliation has kept them from initiating a conversation, even if they were originally attracted to that person.

Avoiding politics while dating is tough, though, it turns out.

"Whether you're a staunch Republican or a liberal Democrat, it's difficult to avoid the political frenzy that has recently swept the nation," the Zoosk spokesperson said.

Zoosk, a San Francisco-based company, serves more than 27 million singles in over 80 countries.
