McDonalds v. Starbucks

Well, this oughta get the next round of political analysts going. Pew has a survey about if people would prefer to have a McDonald's or a Starbucks in their neighborhood.

Overall, people preferred McDonald's (43 to 35 percent), but demographic breakdowns show that the richer, younger, and more liberal you are, the more likely you are to prefer coffee to a quarter pounder. I guess the stereotype about the wealthy latte-sipping liberal is true, sort of. In any case, the data is worth spending five minutes with and laughing at.
