This final note on the way out. We did a thing a couple of months ago about beer, and how you could tell a lot about a person’s politics by the beverage they choose.

Today, the non-alcoholic version. The polling group Public Policy Polling has some new data. Democrats apparently choose regular sodas over diet: 47 percent to 31. Republicans go 42 percent for diet, 34 for regular. Coke beats Pepsi no matter how you vote.

And soda beats beer. Which just beats me.
