Chart: 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.

You’re talking about me! I don’t drink any sort of alcohol—can’t stand the taste of any of it!

Well then, what alcohol do you like, based on the women they have in their ads?

Where's "homemade"? It's an alternative green fuel... really.

Obviously you have never tasted 20-year-old Pappy Van Winkle bourbon.

There is a certain irony that the most avid Democrat voters prefer Smoking Loon.

Vodka = democrats. Not surprised. They also like political philosophies from Russia.

With exception to Patrons, I’m certainly on the right side of this chart.

Seems like most clear liquors go to the Dems and the rest falls mid-line or to the right.

As a fan of Johnnie Walker, I’m incensed that I’m considered centrist. I’m not a fan of many other types of whiskys.

I selected a wine at a restaurant based solely on it’s name once.
Liberty School. It was very good.

Is it just me or is there a lot more drinking on the Dem side?

My favorite professor and his wife purchased gin by the caseload. He was ultra conservative. But he wouldn’t have participated in such a stupid survey.
