Trump Is Making Marriage Awkward

This election is having a strange effect on marriages. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“There’s a phenomenon in election polling that Democratic pollster Celinda Lake calls the “sure, honey” factor. In a previous election cycle, her firm, Lake Research Partners, found that 72 percent of men were confident that their female partners would vote for the same candidate they would. Just 49 percent of women felt the same way about their male partners. “Guys just assume who their wives are voting for,” Lake told the Guardian. “And I think some women go, ‘Sure, honey,’” but then go vote for someone else.

The 2016 election is bucking this particular rule of politics, among others. A new online poll from the Guardian and Ipsos Public Affairs found that four out of five Donald Trump supporters thought their spouses would vote for the same candidate, while nine out of 10 Hillary Clinton supporters thought the same. Since Trump voters skew male and Clinton voters skew female—Clinton beat Trump by about 14 points among women in a recent poll—these numbers are a surprising reversal of the “sure, honey” trend. It appears that people backing Clinton are remarkably confident that they didn’t marry someone who could vote for Trump, while Trump voters aren’t so sure their spouses won’t vote for Clinton.”
