Latte Politics

2008_04_graph.jpgWith the media abuzz with election hype and candidate mudslinging, the stats geeks at Urbanspoon have actually found a correlation between Obama voters and latte drinkers: "The blue line measures the percentage by which Obama beat (or lost to) Clinton. The green dots represent the number of Starbucks stores per million people for each state. The black line is the trend line of Starbucks stores, drawn to make it easier to see the relationship between voting and latte sipping ... States with more latte-purveying Starbucks stores are more likely to have gone for Obama." Next up: Peet's Coffee and Newsom voters. [Urbanspoon]
