So only Republicans are American Light Beer drinkers?

Pffft.

And those Mexican beers are drank by Mexican voters (and some Mexican food snobs) who may or may not turn out to vote.

Anything with the word Light or Lite in it, isn’t beer.

BTW, I don’t know of any libs who actually drink Guinness. They buy it and hold the glass, sometimes faking a sip to appear ‘international’ but they don’t actually drink it. Too strong for their weak sensibilities.

Sometimes you need ID to buy beer, so this eliminates all democrats and the chart is irrelevant.

The graph is about as BS as their polling. I drink Heineken, Stella, Dos Equis, and Guiness, yet I’m about as Conservative as they come. The person who created that needed to have some sense knocked into them, or quit drinking while writing these things for the MSM.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

If you are a metrosexual who routinely sticks his pinkie out while drinking beers, you may find yourself voting for Obama on election day.

Guinness has been promoted by Mens Health magazine for years as a “sensible” beer at “only” 125 calories per bottle/can/glass.

I personally LOVE black and tans (Guinness and Harp), but I don’t drink them nearly as much as I do Sam Adams brands.

Yuengling must be a conservative beer. I drink it and I assume you drink it. My conservative friends drink it.

I also drink Sam Adams and occasionally some micro-brews. Most of the time I drink bourbon, either straight or with rocks. I don’t know any liberals that drink bourbon, but I don’t make it a habit to drink with liberals.

Similarly, pollsters sometimes ask the question, "Who would you rather have a beer with?" to gauge which candidate has the likeability edge.

Romney doesn't drink beer and Bush gave it up later in life.

I wouldn't want to hang with a douchebag like Obama even if I got an invite to the White House.

Likewise. I drink only Becks or if not available, Heineken and I'm to the "right" of Jen-Jis (as the bottom-feeding, Traitor, John Kerry pronounces it) Khan.

UGH!!! NO! I bought a 6 pack of this stuff on the recommendation of a "beer aficionado" and didn't make it through the first bottle.

Bourbon and beer do not belong together.

Did anyone else notice the upper left hand quadrant (Democrats that vote) has a huge gap? The left side of that quadrant is blank.

It looks to me like those that identify strongly as a Democrat and who vote (in other words: the people that are actively involved in the Democratic party) as a statistical group don’t drink beer at all.

Maybe the old saw about the Democratic party being run by elitist wine drinking snobs is true after all.
