Down the political hatch: Is drink preference a party indicator?

Even with New Years Eve ‘cheer’ languishing as yesterday’s memory, it turns out there are some imbibing facts worthy of note. The Washington Post reports that what you drink is a likely indicator of how you’ll vote. In an analysis of voting habits, wine drinkers are more likely overall to cast ballots.

    Next time we’re out, I’ll pay closer attention to what our friends drink and see how true this is, since we definitely know their politics. It’s an interesting premise.

    How interesting that the most committed liberal partisans drink expensive champagne and brandy (cognac), while the Republican base voters drink more modestly priced wines. That flies in the face of common perceptions.

      Not really when you think about it. Libtards are elitists so what would you expect from the “ruling class”?

  3. Braveheart says:

    According to Fox Business News, champagne sales are declining globally. Since the WaPo report says Democrats drink more champagne, that could be a good indicator for the upcoming elections!!

    The Hispanic community, usually voting (D), prefers to drink BUD LIGHT, distributed in AZ by HENSLEY DIST., owned by Cindy Hensley, wife of (R) senator john mcStain…just sayin’…

      True enough, Doc. I’ve observed beer drinkers are mostly Democrats. So follow that to its logical conclusion as it relates to the McCain’s. They’ve gotten very wealthy and powerful appealing to Democrats, both with the senator’s leftward political lurch and his wife’s providing the buzz for liberals.
