Hunch's report on How Food Preferences Vary by Political Ideology shows some differences between what foods conservatives and liberals prefer. Hunch summarize the results in their blog, such as that conservatives prefer homey, comfort foods and are more likely than liberals to eat fast food, while liberals are more likely to eat healthy or vegetarian alternatives. When liberals do eat fast food, they tend to prefer specialty, regional chains. Of course, there's also common ground: both sides agree that bacon double cheeseburgers are delicious, and they both like hot dogs.
How does your your political ideology fit with these results? (It's worth noting that the sampling size of liberals was larger than conservatives; out of over 64,000 Hunch users, 15% labeled themselves as "conservative," and 54% as "liberal.")
