Tennis-track versus wrestling-track Democrats
Dividing Dems into “wine-track” and “beer-track” voters is one of the most annoying cliches of the past few election cycles, so I respectfully suggest we turn to this breakdown of sports fans’ political affiliations for replacement terminology. The relative popularity of professional wrestling, tennis, and basketball among Democrats roughly correlates to the party’s appeal to blue collar workers, white collar yuppies, and urban minorities.
Similarly, Republicans can be divided into “PGA-track” and “football-track” voters, which nicely captures the divide between country club donors and Sam’s Club activists.
