Stereotypically speaking, the Democratic Party is the party of sexual freedom and liberation, while Republicans are a bunch of stuck-up prudes who decry sex before marriage. However, the crack journalism team at ABC News has found the opposite to be true. According to data from popular dating and hookup app Tinder, convention-goers at the RNC were looking for love at a much higher rate than their liberal counterparts at the DNC:
“What were they really looking for in these two cities?” T.J. Holmes asked on Good Morning America. “They were looking for love.” “The use for Tinder was up 54 percent in Philly and Cleveland, the Republicans got you, 82 percent increase in Tinder use,” he said.
Holmes finished off the segment by suggesting a more fitting song for both conventions.
“So, I know there’s a lot of talk about music and whatnot at these conventions, so, maybe the theme music for both candidates coming out should have been Marvin Gaye, ‘Let’s Get it On,’” he said.
Love trumps hate, indeed.
