So, what you drink, apparently says a lot about how you will vote in this year’s Presidential election.   The website, Buzzfeed.com, took data from an app called Trendsetter, which compared polling data with how many people “liked” different brands of alcohol on Facebook, and the results might surprise you.

Apparently if you drank Jack Daniels or Jim Beam this weekend, chances are you’re voting for MITT ROMNEY tomorrow.  You’re also more likely to be a Romney supporter if you drank Budweiser.  But for some reason, you’re less likely to make it to the polls than a Jim Beam drinker is.  Meanwhile, they say likely OBAMA voters prefer Absolut Vodka, Heineken, and Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Here’s what they say about a few other popular drinks . . .  If your drink of choice is Dos Equis, Captain Morgan or Guinness, you’re about 20% more likely to vote for ROMNEY.  You’re also SLIGHTLY more likely to choose Romney if you like Southern Comfort or Bailey’s.  But you’re more likely to vote for Obama if you drink Corona.

It says nothing about people who choose wine or cider.

What did YOU drink this past weekend?
