Majority of Democrats at Dartmouth 'uncomfortable' living with roommate who disagrees on politics, poll finds
Excerpt: Democratic college students' intolerance towards their Republican peers extends beyond the classroom into living arrangements, according to a new survey. A poll of 432 Dartmouth students conducted last month asked respondents to answer "how comfortable [they] would be having a roommate with opposing political views to [their] own". Less than 40 percent of Democrats said they would be comfortable in that arrangement, with a full 45 percent saying it would make them uncomfortable. Comparatively, 69 percent of Republican students said they would be comfortable living with a political opponent. In stark contrast to the 45 percent of Democratic students, only 12 percent of Republicans said it would make them feel uncomfortable.
