Does Your Choice Of Booze Reveal Your Politics?



The chart above, produced by the right-leaning research firm NMRPP and first published in the Washington Post last week, shows the comparative political inclinations (and relative voter turnouts) associated with the drinkers of various major liquor brands.

At first glance this may look like it conforms to some basic stereotypes about the two parties—Democrats like wine! Republicans like whiskey!—but wine actually runs the whole political scale, with Smoking Loon drunk primarily by Democrats, and Robert Mondavi drunk primarily by Republicans. Major whiskey brands do generally show a Republican bent, with the exception of Jameson, Canadian Mist, and Glen Ellen.

Gin is nearly exclusively Democratic, but the real lesson of the chart is to stay away from Jägermeister, a bi-partisan scourge that apparently renders you unable to get up and vote.

Meh, my wife and I have been all over the place on that graph. Currently, I'm mostly a beer drinker. But when I do enjoy whiskey, it's usually Jameson.

We're both Conservatives but with a lot of Libertarian leanings, as well. What does that say?

It sounds like you may be an indiscriminate alcoholic.

Nothing I buy is on this chart. When I do go for grocery store wine, which I did as recently as last night, I tend to choose Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough region of New Zealand.

As far as liquor goes, I keep my house stocked with bourbon, rye, and gin (and specialty liqueurs/amaros). But none of the brands I buy show up on this cart either. What about Hendrick's or Plymouth? What about Blanton's or Eagle Rare? I implore NMRPP to further investigate this matter.

It is somewhat difficult to find open ratings on the net without being a member, but here is one that is right on, rating it as an 89. Wine Spectator had also given it an 89 as well IIRC, and it has been pretty consistent right there for about a decade.

**edit** I just noticed that they were using Wine Spectator as their rating.
