beer chart

It is often said that you can tell a lot about a man’s sexual preference by what beer he drinks. Now, thanks to Tracey Robinson, you can get a good idea of how he votes as well.  As it turns out, to the surprise of no one, Lone Star drinkers are vastly Republican but hardly vote. Microbrew drinkers on the other hand tend to lean democratic and have a high turnout rate. 

Here are some more interesting statistics about what your beer might be saying about your political life:

  • If your looking to score with that wacky political science major who believes that not voting is a crime grab a Sierra Nevada who’s drinkers have the highest turnout rate.
  • Corona (a Mexican beer) is drank by Democrats who can’t vote.
  • If you want to play if safe and mask your political convictions grab a Bud Light or Miller High Life. It seems that all Americans enjoy Lagers.
  • PBR did not even make the list because never in the history of the brew has a single PBR drinker ever made it out to vote.

    Would drinking your own beer fall under the micro-brew category?

    • don't blow it says:

      If you drink your own beer it probably means you vote third party “on principle” and screw it up for the major party that most closely aligns with your values. Just buy someone else’s beer for f’s sake! ;)
