According to a new FiveThirtyEight poll conducted via SurveyMonkey, President Trump tops healthcare, the economy and immigration as the “issue” that’s “most likely to start a Thanksgiving argument.”  

Nearly 37 percent of Americans voted Trump as the most controversial conversation topic over Thanksgiving meals and gatherings, far surpassing personal debt (6.2%), health care (4.7%), and the economy (4.3%) among other issues.

In the same poll conducted in 2014 with then-President Obama in office, only 11 percent of Americans said that talking about the president would be the surest way to spur an argument.

The FiveThirtyEight poll of 948 people was conducted from Nov. 15-16 via SurveyMonkey Audience.

President Trump is heading to Mar-a-Lago or the “Winter White House” for Thanksgiving.

His approval ratings continue to fall with an average of 39 percent going into the holiday.

Most Americans are dreading the thought of talking politics over Thanksgiving dinner, a new NPR/FBS NewHour/Marist poll found.
