    Yes! We're both Liberals or Democrats

    Yes! We're both Conservatives or Republicans

    Yes! We're both members of a third party

    We agree on a few things, but mainly disagree

    We agree on almost nothing

    We both lean the same way when it comes to politics and I am thankful for that. We do, however, sometimes play “devil’s advocate” with each other during political discussions – he keeps me on my toes! I like that we stimulate each other and it can sometimes be educational. There are a few issues that we agree on but got to that conclusion for different reasons and I think that is fascinating.

    I respect anyone’s political position if they can actually back up their position with education and facts/logic, while still being civil and respectful.

    Overall, yes we agree on everything politically.

    We’re both left liberals — but more moderate on some things than some of our close friends. Which still puts us firmly in the “deep blue” side of the spectrum, LOL. This is probably intolerant of me, but for myself, I couldn’t abide a “mixed” marriage in this sense. I’m way too outspoken and argumentative not to have someone who has my back on political arguments.

    We are both very liberal Democrats.  I would never ever date a Republican.

    I’m a registered democrat, and my SO is an independent, but I’m not sure why he just doesn’t change his registration to democrat because his views aline so well with the democrat platform.  I would say that I’m more liberal than he is, but he’s liberal too.  I could never date someone that is conservative, especially a social conservative.

    I am a very liberal Democrat, I’m pretty sure I bleed blue. Fiance is very liberal on social issues but fiscally conservative so he is registered Republican even though he doesn’t like the party and will not be voting for Romney. He said he’d be a Libertarian if Libertarians weren’t so crazy (his words not mine).
