My DH and I are both very interested in politics. We didn't always vote the same way, as I changed my way of thinking as I went through uni and was exposed to a different way of thinking and different people. We vote the same way pretty much nlw although we do have differing opinions on some issues. We can get into some pretty fiery discussio s

However, I have family members that staunchly back people like Pauline Hanson and I tolerate them to keep the peace, but I don't go out of my way to talk to them.

DH and I vote at opposite ends of the political spectrum (he votes greens and I vote liberals). He would vote for a benevolent dictator if that was an option. But he grew up in communist Russia (and has been here since he was 13) so maybe that has had some influence..?
We are both passionate about domestic and international politics, social & economic issues, and we have lengthy discussions (and sometimes arguments) about these things but it doesn't come between us. It actually makes things more interesting.

Dh and I have the same views on matters and vote the same.
I could absolutely not be with someone who was opposite.

Calling all those with a keen interest in politics!
I have a moderate interest in politics - I'm interested in policies and issues but not so much the politicians or how politics work.
DF and I have fairly similar, although not exactly the same, views.
I would struggle being in a relationship or close friendship with someone to had vastly different views. I'm not talking labour vs liberal (which I think are more similar than die hard supporters probably like to admit!) but more along the lines of PH supporters.

Just reading over the posts above, it's interesting to see what the general view is of liberal voters. The things described above are nothing even close to what I am like.
