From Jason Armesto at BBC News:
Experts say that who you vote for has now risen to be among the most important factors in love. The challenge is particularly acute – and cuts across generations – for singletons living in places where they are in the political minority. Young people who worked in the Donald Trump White House, for example, famously found romance difficult in liberal Washington DC.
Daniel Huff, a former Trump White House adviser, once went on a date, ordered cocktails, and found himself alone before they even arrived. In that small window of time, his date had learnt where Mr Huff worked. She promptly walked away.
