Ask imbibers who are past New Democrat, Liberal and Conservative voters which alcohol they drink most often and more than four-in-ten in each group say they’ll crack a beer, while close to the same number across each voting segment will instead pop a cork. This is what an Angus Reid survey on alcohol preferences has found. However, each cohort does have its own unique palate. Conservatives are more likely to prefer liquor, Liberals more likely to prefer wine, and New Democrats more likely to prefer beer. New Democrats are almost twice as likely as Conservatives to enjoy craft beer, while preference for domestic beer is nearly identical across each party.
