Politics isn't on the top of my list for discussion; not at all for debate. I don't know if my being an independent to the OP's mind makes my husband being a true-blue bleeding heart Liberal 'my opponent,' but if so, I could vote in the poll an easy yes.
I don't have 'fanatics' for friends; I don't have many friends, but I am friendly with many people who are political and vote differently than I have. I do not, however, knowingly, feel relaxed and trusting around haters regardless of their political affiliation.
I didn't vote in the poll.
