    Study: Liberals drink more alcohol than conservatives

    Asobering new study published by the Journal of Wine Economics — yes, there is a Journal of Wine Economics — finds that alcohol consumption in American states rises as the population’s politics becomes more liberal.
    The study by Pavel Yakovlev and Walter P. Guessford of Duquesne University in Pennsylvania shows a direct correlation between political beliefs and the demand for alcohol. The study compares sales of alcoholic beverages against the political leanings of a state's members of Congress, as ranked by liberal organizations Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) and the AFL-CIO Committee on Political Education (COPE).

    Re: Study: Liberals drink more alcohol than conservatives

    I saw a study that said Conservatives are less likely to help little old ladies cross the street and more prone to borrowing their neighbors power tools and not return them.
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    I don't buy that one. Most conservatives I know would be more the source of power tools rather than the borrower..

    I think its the Mormons, Pentecostals, Southern Baptists, and the various fundamentalists that drag down the alcohol consumption rate for conservatives. Similarly, those groups probably increase the closeted gay and sham marriage rate for conservatives, but that's another study.

    As opposed to Liberals drinking because it helps them forget they're Liberals.

    I'd wager it's Union made beer too. Good for you, support those Unions.
