40% of Democrats Say It’s Not Possible to Like And Respect Supporter of President Trump

Forty percent (40%) of Democrats say it is not possible to like and respect someone who supports President Trump. A ScottRasmussen.com survey found that view is shared by 14% of Independent voters and 6% of Republicans (see crosstab results).

The survey also found that 38% of Republicans say it is not possible to like and respect someone who belongs to the anti-Trump resistance. Fourteen percent (14%) of both Democrats and Independent voters agree.

Overall, among all voters, 21% cannot respect Trump supporters while 22% cannot support members of the resistance.

When it comes to religion, 15% say it is not possible to like and respect atheists; 14% say the same about Muslims; 9% about Jews; and, 5% about Christians. Republicans have a bit harder time than Democrats with Atheists and Muslims. Democrats are somewhat more likely to have problems with Christians and Jews.

Ideologically, 14% could never like and respect liberals. Ten percent (10%) hold that view of conservatives, progressives, and libertarians.
