It seems like the election divide just continues to widen as we inch closer to knowing who will hold the office of the president come early next year. If you’ve found that politics are battering your relationships more than ever, you’re not alone, according to a recent survey

Another poll titled “Dueling Realities” from the Public Religion Research Institute found that around 80 percent of Republicans believe the Democratic party has been taken over by socialists and around 78 percent of Democrats think the Republican party has been taken over by racists. These are challenging narratives to work through for families and friends who may not agree on political ideology. So how are you managing this within your household? Today on AirTalk we want to hear from you. Do you have a divided household? What impact have political rifts had on your family? How are you planning to manage throughout election night and beyond?
