At the end of last night's broadcast of Hannity & Colmes, I heard an interesting factoid. A recent survey of voters' shopping preferences indicated that McCain voters prefer doing business at Wal-Mart, Kohl's and J C Penny, while Obama voters favor Target and Macy's. I am one voter who fits that profile completely. (Even though I wrote about shopping at Target last week, it is not my store of first choice but a place that I go when I can't find things elsewhere.) And I couldn't help noticing that McCain voters are shopping at more middle-class retailers, while Obama voters are patronizing higher-priced ones (I know Target is a discount store, but it's an upscale discount store). So much for the theory that the Republicans are the party of the rich and Democrats are the party of the common man. When it comes to shopping habits, at least, it appears to be the other way around.
Addendum: Here's a link to the Zogby poll that was referenced on Hannity & Colmes.
