Poll: Trump Turns Liberals into Fat Drunks as Democrats Are More Likely to Eat Their Feelings, Drink
Townhall.com ^ | November 4, 2018 | Timothy Meads

A recently released YouGov poll has found that due to political anxieties, Democrats are more likely to "eat their feelings" and drink more than their Republican counterparts. However, these same people were also more likely to exercise to reduce stress associated with politics as well.

According to a poll commissioned by the Daily Burn and conducted by YouGov, "Democrats are 50% more likely than Republicans to say they’re eating their feelings as a result of the current political climate." But they were also 40% more likely to exercise.

Likewise, the report shows that "political pain points have been driving Dems to drink more, at a 2-to-1 ratio over their counterparts in the GOP."

The same poll also found that Democrats, Republicans, and Independents alike have admitted that events in the news have caused them to use more social media and binge-watch TV on platforms such as Netflix since 2016. However, even here Democrats were more likely to use social media at 59% Democrats and 52% Republicans admitting to increased usage. The numbers were similar for binge-watching TV at 57% and 50%.

Of those who have increased their exercise due to political pressures, many "have incorporated cardio, such as running, spinning/cycling, rowing, or ellipticals into their exercise regime."

“Exercise is critical in helping people deal with outside stress, whether it’s from work, personal life, or politics,” Tricia Han, CEO of Daily Burn released in a statement. “We wanted to get a sense for how these stressors are affecting exercise and other behavioral habits across party lines. While it’s surprising to see that across both aisles lower intensity exercises were more likely, no matter what the exercise is – HIIT, yoga, biking, etc. – pumping those endorphins is always a good idea.”

This survey was conducted online from Oct. 18-22 among 2,485 respondents age 18 and up, according to the Daily Burn's press release.

I guess this is the reason why liberal women are on the heavy side.

It doesn't explain why they are homely and smell though.

Legalize pot like an adult beverage. The Dems will smoke away their anxiety, and then eat when they come down from the high, and be too fat and too mellow or depressed to be effective. And then there’s the heart attack angle. And then the government can tax the pot crop! Win/win/win/win

If the dems pull a Mr Creosote after all that eating and drinking, film it and it’ll go viral.

I surf the 3 C-SPAN channels - a lot, looking for something interesting, i.e., a fair speaking person.
It is too often that the gal with the dirty long hair, and
no makeup - plus bad jewelry taste, is always a Lib. Just
saying! Seems the smiling, happy ones are from the Right.
My personal observation only, if I cared enough I’d document it with a camera and write a book. HA.

Add in terminally stupid and emotionally disturbed and you have a lethal combination.

I ask them what's not to like about a full employment economy, rising wages for the working class for the first time in decades and record low unemployment for who they claim are their favorite constituencies-- Hispanics, Blacks and Women.

All I get back in return is that he's a racist, misogynist and bigot as if they can see into his soul when they, themselves, lack one.

They're more likely to embrace stupid political affiliations and agendas, oh, and to chop up and snort their psych meds, and those of close relatives.
