Liberal Tolerance Myth Destroyed: Democrats much more likely to unfriend people due to political posts

Compared to Republicans and Independents, Democratic voters are almost three times as likely to have “blocked, unfriended, or stopped following someone on social media” over politics according to a study released Monday.

The nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI ) found 24 percent of Democrats distanced themselves from people on social media because of a political postings. Nine percent of both Republicans and independents reported doing the same to those in social media circles.

Additionally, 28 percent of liberals surveyed said they removed someone from their social media circle because of the content that person posted, compared with 8 percent of conservatives.
