What Your Beer Says About Your Politics



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.
