A new Fox News Poll finds that people are deeming it more important that a partner shares their political ideology. Some 55% of respondents believe it is “somewhat important” that a special someone share their views, up from 51% a year ago. Meanwhile, 28% think it is “very” important, up from 21 percent just a year ago. Republicans also prioritize politics slightly higher than Democrats: roughly 62% of Republicans find ideology “important” compared to 58% of Democrats.
