Food Preferences of Liberals and Conservatives

How Food Preferences Vary by Political Ideology:
This report examines the differences in selected food-related preferences and choices made by self-described conservatives and liberals.
The report draws on aggregated data collected between April 2009 and November 2009 from Hunch, a website which aids in decision making.

Key Findings
While there is significant common ground in the food choices made between the two groups, there are also important differences. Liberals show a consistent tendency to enjoy more international and exotic cuisines, with conservatives often leaning more towards mainstream, comfort food staples.
Significant differences also surface between the two groups in consumption preferences for meat, vegetables, fruit, and 'healthy alternatives', with conservatives generally choosing the less healthy options."

Not sure about this methodology and I am sure that folks will see a lot of confirmation bias when they analyse it but hey, it is Friday and we can have some fun .
