    How does the guy know? If a guy walks in wearing an Obama t-shirt maybe, but lets say they come in wearing a Utah Jazz t-shirt (since this is Utah). Do Liberals not like basketball or something?

    Nah, just the opposite. It's an advertising gimmick that's age old. He knows the vast majority of his customer base identifies as conservative, and this plants them firmly on their "side" in matters that have absolutely nothing to do with his business, what he's selling.

    Yeah, I didn't get that either. It's near impossible to tell the difference between liberals and conservatives in that kind of setting. He's dumb on several levels.

    That's possible. I think that will backfire on him as well as I suspect some of his conservative customer base wouldn't appreciate his actions either.

    Agreed, though it can, and does, go both ways. Could also cement in a core customer base that is loyal not just because of product but also because of political identity. These types of customer cores become cheerleaders for your business and will go to great lengths to ensure your business thrives. It's done all the time on both the liberal and conservative sides of the fence. The trick is in really knowing your customer base.

    Another way too look at this is that the Liberals pay the extra to help the economy, The Republicans(I don't like the word conservative because there are none) don't pay the extra because they just don't care about helping the economy.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    Haha! More power to him. It's pretty brilliant marketing assuming he's in a very "red" area.

    True. When Oreo revealed its rainbow colored Oreo campaign in support of same-sex marriage that was clearly aimed at a more liberal base. I just consider campaigns like that more substantive than "you're a [insert political lean], you suck" sort of campaign, but I guess he'll find out how it goes.
