It%u2019s a question that until now seemed difficult to answer to, beyond mere speculation without any scientific basis. No one seemed to have the great idea to make a similar experiment in our country, but some answers are starting to emerge on the subject, since according to a recent study on consumption habits conducted in the U.S., it does seem to be some clear trends on the political tendencies of consumers of alcoholic beverages.
Specifically, always according to the results obtained by National Media Research Planning and Placement, the Democrats seem to prefer rather clear drinks like vodka, champagne and craft beers, Stella Artois or Miller Genuine Draft, while Republicans lean toward dark beverages such as whiskey or wine, and beer like Miller Lite, Amstel Lite, Blue Moon, Samuel Adams or Michelbob Ultra.
The current study also analyzes trough the habits of drinkers if they are more or less likely to vote (which in the U.S. is very important, since for voting you must be pre-register and therefore there is a large body of citizens who, despite having its more or less clear political preferences never have approached a ballot paper). The “silent majority.” Well, this majority also has its preferences when it comes to drinking, as the most progressive tend to consume flavored vodka, peach schnapps and beers like Milwaukee ‘s Best light beer, Heineken or Budweiser while conservatives opt for spirits such as Jägermeister, Jack Daniels or Malibu and beers like Coors, Corona Light and Busch.
In the center of the American political spectrum you can find the rum drinkers (especially Bacardi and Captain Morgan) and Bud Light beer. Who knows if these drinks also have some influence on the politics preferences in our latitudes? Judging by the amount of English citizens drinking beer, what would that mean according to this study? Are the Lager drinker from the Labour Party and the Guinness drinker for the Liberal Party?
