    Snowboarding vs Skiing/Democrat vs Republican

    This is a scientific poll to determine what party affiliation snowboarders vs skiers align themselves with.

    I hate snow. I suppose that makes me an independent.

    Re: Snowboarding vs Skiing/Democrat vs Republican

    My theory is that snowboarders are more free spirits and also tend to be younger, therefore are prone to be Democrats.

    I, personally, am a former excellent skier, but have utterly gone over to the other side. I have given myself up to the freedom of my board and my MP3/

    I'm an independent.

    Re: Snowboarding vs Skiing/Democrat vs Republican

    You should have had one more choice:

    I hate both skiing and snowboarding and I hate both political parties.

    They only provide 10 choices, therefore my hands are tied. Alas, my poll is limited.

    Re: Snowboarding vs Skiing/Democrat vs Republican

    I voted democrat, although I am an independent, I do relate to them more than I do republicans. I also had a hunch that voting democrat might bust your hypothesis a tad (although I do not know if my assumption of your premise is in any way accurate or not).

    If anything the segregating factor is the date a person first set waxed surface to downhill slope on.

    Pre 1990 - skier

    Post 1990 - Snowboarder

    Also since younger people trend more liberal and democratic I predict the results to be skewed as such:

    snowboarders - predominantly D

    Skiers - predominantly R

    does this fall in line with your hypothesis?

    Oh well. I guess I'll just have to "suffer" with other.

    That would be correct. I would hypothesize though that snowboarders generally are more free spirited by nature, setting aside the demographic and generational issues.
