Ashley Madison data reveals Republicans are more likely to cheat on their spouses

Published

One thing that came out of the hack on Ashley Madison was the information that the site was overwhelmingly dominated by male users. Data is now revealing, however, that among those men (and women) currently using the site, the majority were Republicans.

Ashley Madison is the world’s leading website for married people seeking additional relationships. According to their numbers, for all of those conservatives who claim “family values,” they’re more apt to compromise their morality if it is expedient for them to do so.

“The Republican party has often touted its traditional values with a foundation based on Judeo-Christian ethics, ethics of course that do not align with adultery,” noted a release on the topic.

However, 89 percent of cheaters “say that opposing political views would compel them to cheat on their spouse.” Of those Ashley Madison users, 60 percent self-identify as Republicans. Those that are cheating also indicated that they’d prefer to cheat with a fellow Republican (55 percent).

“It’s surprising to see so many members of AshleyMadison.com voting Republican. The liberal sexual behavior of our members was not exactly reflective of their political affiliation,” says Isabella Mise, Director of Communications for Ashley Madison. “It was expected that cheating may have been more prevalent amongst Democrats who may be more open to the idea of infidelity, but that just wasn’t the case.”

Presidents from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Donald Trump had extra-marital relationships, and voters seemed to indicate they didn’t care about it in the 2016 election.

The Republican Party and the religious right has come under fire in the past year for hypocritical views on morality and family values, while having a willingness to compromise those values for Trump.

The former reality TV star currently serving as president of the United States is viewing his impeachment as a television production, The Washington Post reported Saturday.
