Liberals Drink More Alcohol Than Conservatives … Alcohol Consumption Rises as a State’s Population Becomes More Liberal
A new study by the Journal of Wine Economics finds that alcohol consumption in American states rises as the population’s politics becomes more liberal. The American Thinker brings up a valid and important point, “all of this makes perfect sense when you consider the extraordinary unhappiness that liberalism and socialism bring to the lives of ordinary humans.” It’s probably safe to say that a survey on pot smoking would be the same. I would want to drink myself into an oblivion as well if my state became more liberal.
Cheers America, How’s that Hopey-Changy stuff working out for you?
A sobering 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).
The research reveals that states with more liberal representatives like Nevada tend to consume up to three times more alcohol per head than more politically conservative states like Arkansas and Utah.
Also, in a lesser known empirical survey, we at Scared Monkeys have noticed that liberals also drink more Obama Kool-Aid as well.
