A new survey says there still are plenty of people who would rather not talk about politics.

The survey, conducted by Provo-based VitalSmarts, finds more than three-quarters of Utahns avoid talking politics with family and friends, and close to half say they've had a bad experience talking politics in the past.

Also, one in 10 Utahns avoids the topic entirely.

Researchers say people in Utah are much less likely to disagree openly, and politics have gone from healthy discussion to unhealthy debate.
