The Washington Post came up with this chart based on data about the relationship between your liquor of choice, your partisan affiliation, and your vote propensity. A few highlights:
- Wine drinkers are more likely to vote than beer drinkers.
- Low-calorie beers lean Republican.
- Heavier beers lean Democrat.
- Someone who enjoys a nice single-malt scotch is more likely to cast a ballot than someone who prefers Canadian whiskey, and malt liquor drinkers turn out with the least frequency.
I’m not much of a wine-bibber myself so I rely on you to tell me whether this rings true in your experience.Published in
