GOP v. Democrats: Social Experiment Proves Republicans are Nicer

Filmmaker Ami Horowitz conducted an interesting experiment at the Republican National Convention this year. He stood outside the convention area holding an “I Love Hillary” sign to see what would happen. People were a little amused but surprisingly nice to a guy who seemed to be in the wrong place. 

When he tried the same experiment at the Democratic National Convention, people weren’t so friendly. Horowitz hit up Philadelphia and stood outside holding an “I Love Trump” sign. The responses were less than kind and it wasn’t long before he was spit up on and called a racist, surrounded by a bullying group of haters. 

Watch the video yourself and see which convention you’d prefer to hang out at:
