Thomas Edsall in the New York Times puts up some more of those political / marketing research graphs [that] show Democrat-Republican skew on the left-right axis and propensity to vote on the vertical axis.
Here, for example, the most Democratic-leaning clientele of restaurants belong to Church’s Chicken, Popeye’s (chicken), White Castle, and Chuck E Cheese’s. (…)
Edsall, who seems a little naive, presents a graph of alcoholic beverages by partisan identification and asks: “Who would have guessed that the most Democratic drink by a long shot is Cognac[?]”
I gather Edsall is not a big hip-hop fan.
Just a reminder:
Thomas Edsall writes for the NYT, and you — and Sailer — never will.
From the comments — an interesting observation that seems to confirm real life observations about racial/cultural differences, re: one’s ability/willingness to plan ahead and delay gratification:
Looks like it’s mostly time preferences being shown, with future-oriented people in the upper right and now-oriented in the lower-left. (…)
And look at how “far” into the future some of the upper-right things are, like checking the Weather Channel or using the web to check the weather. Apparently even thinking about later in the day, at most the next few days, is enough to make you future-oriented.
The lower-left uses of the web are joyless addictions, the mark of people trapped in the present. Essentially all forms of illegal downloading. No thought, no fun, just getting stuck on a treadmill of downloading one mp3 after another, or movie, or video game, or TV show. (…)
The food graph is the same — gimme-now places in the lower left, and we-don’t-mind-waiting places in the upper right.
