Add to Security Moms, NASCAR Dads and Moose Stew Chefs another sliver of the voting demographic: Wine and Cheese voters. My friend at I Will Always Have Food Today heard this phrase applied to a segment of the Republican party.
It made me wonder whether it would be depressing or flattering to be referred to as a Wine and Cheese voter. Is it equivalent to “limousine liberal” but edible and Republican? Is it true, after all, that you are what you eat?
What’s next? Hot Dish and Coffee voters in the Upper Midwest and Latte and Bagel voters on the coasts? But more interestingly, what other food-based voter demographics could we identify?
