DAILYKENN.com -- No one less than fortune.com has revealed that Democrats are three times more likely to unfriend others on Facebook than their sane counterparts.

This year’s bitter presidential election has caused a rift in online relationships. According to a new survey, 13% of Americans reported blocking or unfriending a “friend” on social media because of their political postings
But the results of the study, carried out by the non-partisan Public Religion Research Institute, show the impulse to block varies widely based on gender and political leanings.
The study shows Democrats were almost three times more likely than Republicans (24% vs. 9%) to have unfriended someone after the election. A similar disparity turned up for self-identified liberals versus conservatives (28% vs. 8%). Meanwhile, only 9% of independents reportedly booted someone out of their online social circles because of politics.
As this graphic shows, the survey also identified “Democratic women” as the most likely of all groups to block someone on social media:
