The differences between Democrats and Republicans span further than just political ideology according to a recent poll conducted by

….While Democrats are the party of bagels (34%) and croissants (32%).

Maybe everyone should compromise and just eat cronuts instead. But there is hope for political harmony. In a point of bipartisan agreement, both parties prefer pancakes to French toast or waffles. At least Americans have some sense, amiright?


Republicans: Chick-Fil-A

For all you vegans out there, your Republican friends may secretly disdain you. Dems demonstrate more hospitality to their lettuce-loving, milk-eschewing brethren than the GOP, of whom 41% express contempt for vegans.

According to a study by PayScale, Americans who make more than $70,000 are more likely to vote Republican. So whip out your good china and fine wine, and dig into the most expensive steak in the world—Wagyu rib eye at $2,800. Caviar and truffles are a little shabby in comparison, but they do add a nice touch.

Democrats: Soda and Whole Foods

Democrats drink regular soda over diet by a 47% to 31% margin, whereas the opposite is true for Republicans. Interestingly enough, they also shop at the grocery store chain Whole Foods much more frequently than members of the GOP.

Despite these small, superficial differences in eating habits, Democrats and Republicans do agree on a lot when it comes to food. Both cite Burger King as their favorite burger joint and prefer Coke to beer.

But during the 2016 presidential elections, they might just be eating each other.
