A staggering amount of Democratic college students would refuse to room with someone who voted for former President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, while college Republicans were far less likely to reject rooming with someone who voted for President Joe Biden, according to a new poll.

The NBC News/Generation Labs poll released Thursday surveyed 1,077 sophomore college students on numerous political topics. Among the questions was one that revealed that 62% of college Democrats would “probably not” or “definitely not” choose to room with someone who supported the opposing presidential candidate in 2020.

“I could never live with someone who supported a racist, homophobic, xenophobic and sexist person,” 18-year-old Siena College student September Mostransky said, referring to Trump, NBC reported. “I could possibly room with somebody who is Republican. But when it comes down to it, Donald Trump is not the average Republican candidate.”

Less than half, 28%, of college Republicans said they would refuse to room with someone who voted Democrat in the 2020 election. Catholic University student Ethan Strohmetz, a 19-year-old Republican, said he could easily room with a Biden voter.

“A person’s political views do not affect whether or not I would have a friendship or relationship with them. Many of my friends have vastly different political views than I do, but I do not let that affect our friendship,” Strohmetz commented.

Generation Labs Founder Cyrus Beschloss was stunned by the findings. “That’s a pretty powerful picture — you have Trump dorms and Biden dorms,” he said. “I don’t think I would have seen that when I was starting college in 2015.”

The poll also revealed that a vast majority, 73%, of college Democratic voters don’t want Biden to run again in 2024. That finding backs up widespread feelings about the president among Democratic voters. Last month, a Quinnipiac poll found that 54% of Democrats don’t want Biden to run for re-election. However, 71% of Democrats continued to approve of Biden’s job as president, according to the same poll.

Among college Republicans in the NBC/Generation Labs poll, 57% supported a 2024 Trump bid. The poll was conducted August 12-17, just days after the FBI raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in south Florida.
