Could a person's political views be a relationship dealbreaker?

Presidential election talk has invaded every single nook of our social lives - including dinner parties. This weekend, one pleasant table conversation swiftly spawned into all out warfare embedded with phrases like:

Now when you're single, ready to mingle and eyeing a prospective guy at a party, there are a couple of deal-breakers that are non-negotiable. Everybody knows the committment it takes to foster a relationship with differing strongly enforced religious beliefs, but what about politics? Could they be just as important to some?
