Trump most likely to wreck Thanksgiving dinner, poll says

Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump is the most likely candidate to say something inappropriate and ruin Thanksgiving dinner, according to a new poll from Public Polling Institute.

Forty-six percent of Americans name Trump as the most likely dinner wrecker while 22 percent say it would be Democrat Hillary Clinton and 7 percent say it would be Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Pollsters asked Americans which presidential candidate they'd like to have over for Thanksgiving dinner and 24 percent said Clinton, 18 percent said retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, 17 percent said Trump and 11 percent said Sanders.

And in other meaningless holiday political polling data, the survey found that 38 percent of Republicans oppose President Barack Obama's executive order last year of pardoning two Thanksgiving turkeys instead of the customary one.

The poll surveyed 80 percent of respondents over the telephone while 20 percent were asked online. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.
