What Do Your Drinking Habits Say About How You Vote?

Beer guzzlers are more likely to vote Republican, and wine connoisseurs are more likely to vote Democrat. That's according to refreshing poll results released by CNN and the Opinion Research Corporation about how drinking habits correlate to voting.


John McCain's lead among brewski drinkers, however, evaporates against Barack Obama, as the two are tied among that group in a head-to-head match up. And, the most shocking result from the poll: about 50 percent said that they never drink, under any circumstance. I'm curious about the methodology.

Alas, you can bring it all back to gender and class stereotypes. The poll showed that women, people with a high income, and the college educated prefer wine. Men, and the working class, generally prefer beer.

Should the candidates bring their campaigns to the bars? Do your drinking preferences reveal anything about you?

I like all liquor, really. I may drink cheap beer one day and champagne for *no reason* the next. lol Politically, I favour revolutionary thinking and people who refuse to play the game. Which is why there has yet to be a really thrilling presidential race for me, they're all beneath my standards. Also, liking wine coolers doesn't make you lame. Deciding they're lame because everyone says they are is lame. No one here is going to be able to give me a real reason why they're considered as such, and that's because it's just social bunk.

I love bloody marys too! My husband and I always order them when we're on vacation. But never here at home. That is so strange now that I think of it. I gotta say though that Southern Comfort and diet coke make for a good night too! Ok, seriously, I need a cocktail!

And yes, I won't be leaving a tip, 'cause I could... I could shut this whole resort down. Sir? I'll take my traveler's checks to a competing resort. I could write a letter to your board of tourism and I could have this place condemned. I could put... I could put... strychnine in the guacamole. There was salt on the glass, BIG grains of salt.

I asked for a mai tai, and they brought me a pina colada, and I said no salt, NO salt for the margarita, but it had salt on it, big grains of salt, floating in the glass...
