(KMOV.com) - As families drive and fly to spend Thanksgiving with loved ones around the country, there is on thing many do not want at the table - politics.

At Lambert Airport many travelers say it is a subject that will be avoided.  

"No politics, nope, no politics, had enough of that," one traveler said as she rushed to the gate.

"It's a no win situation," said another traveler trying to catch a flight to Atlanta.

Many said they will try to change the subject or just walk out of the room if the election does up in conversation. The only exception travelers said, is if they know everyone at the table is in agreement. 

A CNN poll released on Wednesday shows that 53% of Americans do not want to talk politics at the dinner table.
