What Your Favorite Food Brands Say About Your Politics
Did you know that Red Bull fans are more likely to vote for Obama and that Chick-fil-A die-hards are more likely to vote for Romney? At least, that’s what the data shows in these charts offering a political breakdown of what our food preferences say about our political sentiments.
Utilizing data gathered from its Trendsetter app, Engage will be working with BuzzFeed to map out cross-references between polling information and Facebook “likes” and influence. What we get is a visual chart connecting our favorite brand name foods and restaurants to who we’re most likely to vote for this presidential election.
“Whether you support Obama or Romney, that support is more often than not a manifestation of where you live, what you watch and where you fit in culturally,” explained Patrick Ruffini, president of Engage.
Mind you, this is just just the beginning. Engage plans on creating 12 new infographics further depicting how other cultural influences (from television to games), shed led on our politics.
