    expression "to be much for something"

    When I say: "I'm not much for politics", will it mean: "I'm not big on politics"?

    so much for sth:
    used to express disappointment and annoyance at the fact that a situation is not as you thought it was:
    The car's broken down again. So much for our trip to the seaside.

    No. But going on the tag for your thread, "expression 'to be much for something'",
    a reasonable guess would be that you meant:
    'to be too much for', which dawoodusmani defined for you.
