The Geography of Partisan Prejudice

this is interesting

In general, the most politically intolerant Americans, according to the analysis, tend to be whiter, more highly educated, older, more urban, and more partisan themselves. This finding aligns in some ways with previous research by the University of Pennsylvania professor Diana Mutz, who has found that white, highly educated people are relatively isolated from political diversity. They don’t routinely talk with people who disagree with them; this isolation makes it easier for them to caricature their ideological opponents.
Interactive map in the link. Shockingly, New York State fared well. Virginia, on the other hand, ouch

If only we knew some white, older, educated partisan virginians to back up this survey

If there is a pattern on the map, the coastal states (except for California - except the Bay areas) which tend to be more blue, have darker shades which means they tend to be more prejudice. The inner states which tend to be redder, have lighter shades.

So based on this study, most republicans are more "tolerant" whereas most Dems are more "intolerant". I thought it would be the opposite. Republicans should be anti-immigrant, anti-porn ...

This is an interesting observation. I suspect it's because Democrats have a tendency to push for legislation that aims to extinguish individual rights/freedoms in exchange for collective rights and expansion of government. Just an assumption though based off the grievances I'm aware of.

In general, Republicans seem to dislike Democrats more than Democrats dislike Republicans, PredictWise found. We don’t know why this is, but this is not the only study to have detected an imbalance.

Or it could mean that even some Republican see the merits of Democrats.
