Table 1 Effect of political mismatch on Thanksgiving dinner duration.

Each regression (column) estimates the effect of voting disagreement on 2016 Thanksgiving dinner duration. All results use linear regressions with fixed effects controlling for an individual’s home location–cross–Thanksgiving destination. Stepwise regressions control for progressively finer pairs, culminating in a five-digit geohash, a square grid about 3 miles by 3 miles in size. The mean duration of Thanksgiving dinner was 257 min (SD = 162 min). The average probability of voting mismatch was 0.44 (SD = 0.10). Standard errors are reported in parentheses and clustered at the precinct-cross-precinct level. R2, coefficient of determination. ***P < 0.001; **P < 0.01.
