I think it is split! There are certainly atrocious conservatives but same goes for liberals!

From my perspective neither one is tolerant at all. Both sides have been controlled by extremists and a my way or highway attitude. The right has more diversity of thought. Most of a conglomeration of different viewpoints. The left has only one viewpoint.

Tolerance is dying.

It is not just in politic, differing views...it's just tolerance period,
People are becoming increasingly selfish, impatient. It's all about them.You see it in politics, you see it in day to day living.

Both sides have folks that will not tolerate opposing views.

right wingers certainly aren't perfect, but liberals are all clinically insane.

The third poll answer is neither. Unless you agree that either the LEFt or the RIGHT loves the other more.

I live in one of the most liberal cities in the U.S. and there is no doubt that the "right" is far more tolerant than the "left," at least here in Baltimore.


I wish it weren't that way, but it is.

The right. They openly express their views as being right but they welcome opposing views as a chance to prove it. The left thinks they're right but bristles at anyone challenging their views. And they usually lose any argument or debate they do get into.

On the extreme sides, probably neither.

According to the left, if you don't welcome with open arms cross dressing men in the women's bathroom or performing shows at your child's elementary school you are a bigot and every -ist possible. Not even up for debate.

It's stuff like this that got Trump elected
