Research on online political communication has primarily focused on content in explicitly political spaces . In this work, we set out to determine the amount of political talk missed using this approach . Focusing on Reddit, we estimate that nearly half of all political talk takes place in subreddits that host political content less than 25% of the time . In other words, cumulatively, political talk in non-political spaces is abundant . We further examine the nature of political talk and show that political conversations are less toxic in non-political subreddits . Indeed, the average toxicity of political comments replying to a out-partisan in non-political subreddits is even less than the toxicity of co-partisan replies in explicitly political subreddits.
