Tolerance is about moderation and acceptance of the other, not “left or right”. In today’s political climate tolerance is becoming very rare.

Current political power ensures that an actual "tolerant" party that is driven by freedom and policy, more than "sides"will be kept out of the fray for as long as possible.

Well libertarians tend to be a live and let live ideology for the most part. They basically ignore others as long as others aren't trying to trespass against them. The true libertarians that I know are also a bit of social Darwinists.

Tolerant of what?

Obvious the left is more tolerant of....pot smoking...and the freedom of your own mind.

The Right is more tolerant of the KKK and of Hate Speech.

And so on. Stupid poll.....

Opposing views? The right would be more tolerant of the "opposing view" of making American white again. The Left would be more tolerant of most any and all peaceful human beings.

The Right would be tolerant of allowing people to die younger due to bad medical care...and so on.

However, as a general rule, Democrats the party of Violent Hate, while Republicans are the party of calm and rational discourse.
bro, they tried to lynch Jussie Smollett in MAGA country and bleach the black off of him. Crime of the century!!

I have good friends that are both Dems and GOPer, none are way too extreme on either side, all are very successful..I can honestly say that the GOP friends are way more laid back, less political, more fun to be around easy going and dont give a ****. Some of my Dem friends get worked up pretty easy, more negative, more outspoken.

My GOP friends also donate way more to charities.
