Seventy percent of Dartmouth students would be less likely to date someone who held differing political views. That figure includes 82 percent of Democratic students, 47 percent of politically independent students, and 42 percent of Republican students.[1]

Forty-two percent would have a hard time befriending someone who held opposing views. That includes 55 percent of Democrats, 21 percent of independents, and 12 percent of Republicans.

It is not clear that this means Democratic students are less tolerant than Republican students. There are fewer Republicans than Democrats on college campuses. As a result, Republican students may need to be more open about relationships or face social isolation.

Twenty-four percent of Dartmouth seniors have lost a friend to political differences.
