Talking turkey this Thanksgiving, but not politics

Here's some food for thought this Thanksgiving: Keep politics off the table.

For many, it's the first time getting together with loved ones after a roller-coaster election and some families are setting the ground rules.

Nearly a third, or 30 percent, of Americans insist politics are strictly off-limits as a conversation topic during Thanksgiving dinner, according to a 2016 Thanksgiving survey by Meyocks, an Iowa-based marketing firm. Twenty-eight percent would rather not talk money either, Meyocks said.

"Many Americans decide to avoid conversations that might change their feelings toward their family members," Meyocks' Doug Jeske said in a statement.

Still, nearly a quarter of Americans expect the presidential election to come up this Thanksgiving. And apparently, discussing religion is now fair game.
