DESERET NEWS - Oct 10 - According to the 2017 American Family Survey, the overwhelming majority of Americans who are married report that their spouse belongs to the same political party. Surveys from the Pew Research Center indicate people now are more likely to marry someone of a different race or religion than to cross party lines to find a husband or wife. While Conservatives Only, one of the most established platforms, launched during the Obama administration, a handful of other right-leaning online dating services have been created since. Trump Singles was released just a few months before the 2016 presidential election, but the website no longer appears to be in operation. Patrio, with a mission to "bring right-leaning individuals together" came on the scene in 2017. DonaldDaters and Righter, the newest of the bunch, were released in 2018. Righter encourages women to be ladylike and men to make the first move. Emily Moreno, the founder of Donald Daters, told Vox that anti-conservative discrimination was one of her reasons for creating the app last year. She said she once had a date walk out on her after she told him she worked on a Republican Senate campaign. There are a number of dating websites for the left-leaning singles as well, including NeverTrump.dating, a response to Trump.dating, Democratic People Meet and Liberal Hearts, which welcomes all left-leaning and progressive daters including LGBTQ people. CandiDate is a nonpartisan app that explores each user's political preferences in order to make matches based on their beliefs on issues like the environment, economy, gun reform, abortion and gay rights.
