    Branding survey finds differences between Republicans and Democrats based on their "most desired" brands. The highlights ...


    Dems GOP
    Car Jeep BMW
    Electronics Sony Sharp
    Insurance Progressive Allstate
    TV Channel Animal Planet History Channel
    Restaurant Wendy's Subway
    Sports NFL MLB
    Coffee Starbucks Dunkin' Donuts
    Gaming System Wii XBOX


    They agreed on several other choices, including Apple for technology.

    Two things jump out at me: 1) I figured NFL and MLB would be switched, based on the George Carlin theory and also on how the NFL has evolved to present itself as the fifth wing of the military; and 2) I don't know how anyone could choose a gaming system other than the Wii.

    This is the best argument for a third party I've ever seen.

    Democrats favor the Wii? This XBox user hails future president Mitt Romney!

    Was "Alabama or Auburn?" one of the questions?

    Wendy's? I would have guessed Panera Bread.

    McDonald's should be concerned.

    The GOP is opposed to Wendy's non-traditional family/pro-adoption stance. Likely means gay parents.

    Armchair, that matters more than you might think. In 2010, Auburn grad Tim James was widely expected to make the GOP runoff for governor. The week before election day, he made some crack about curtailing Nick Saban's power. Next thing you know, he finishes well up the track, and the underdog Robert Bentley squeezes into second on his way to winning in November.

    (Also, it did not help James' case that he was a foof and his father was a flaming disaster as gov in both terms, one with each party.)

    Creosote, have you tried the new fries they rolled out last year? Much better effort.

    New burgers are better, too.
