Elias Dinas, Associate Professor of Comparative Politics, has been quoted in an article in the New York Times, discussing political differences within families, and the potential for argument.

Elias comments that when people are raised in a politically minded household, they are "less hesitant to discuss politics later on when leaving their parental home. In so doing, they are more likely to confront events, opinions and cues that might contradict parental partisan or political views."
