Let’s talk about voter sentiment. Conservatives: would you want to cozy up to a liberal Valentine? And Democrats, would you have a Republican sweetheart? Well, maybe not.

Among all American voters, 53 percent say it’s important that their romantic partners share their political views. So says a new Fox News poll of registered voters released just in time for Valentine's Day.

Some have more of that sentiment than others.

Among tea partiers, the number is 73 percent. And among Republicans, 60 percent say politics matters in the matter of amour, compared to 51 percent of Democrats. Among conservatives, 57 percent say it’s important, along with 49 percent of liberals.


Incidentally 53 percent overall look forward to Valentine's Day, compared to 46 percent who don’t.
