Does This Ring True For You?

Political Affiliation and Demographics

Republican/Democrat Party Affiliation and Conservative/Liberal Identification

I've scoured the Web for interesting polls, studies, and opinions (Click title above and see excerpts below) detailing the personal and socio-economic characteristics that may predict a person's ideological leanings or party affiliation.

Some generally accepted political stereotypes are validated by statistical tendencies: Republicans/conservatives are more likely to have higher incomes, members of minority groups are more likely to be Democrats/liberals, etc.

Statistically, you're more likely to be a Republican and/or conservative if you're:
a man
a college graduate
in the top income bracket
an evangelical Christian
living in a rural area
a Thinker-Sensor

Statistically, you're more likely to be a Democrat and/or liberal if you're:
a woman
a senior citizen
living in an urban area
a Feeler-Intuitor
