Our happy hour fact to amaze your drinking buddies with.
Supporters of the Republican party are more likely to watch sports on TV than their Democratic counterparts.
National Media, Inc. analyzed 218,000 interviews conducted by ratings agencies Nielsen and Arbitron between August 2008 and September 2009.
They found that, overall, Republicans are more likely to watch sports than Democrats -- and that the discrepancy was most pronounced among golf and college football
There were some sports, however, favored by the supporters of the party currently in power: The NBA
and the WWE
had the biggest Democratic leans in overall viewership.
So, if Obama suddenly declares professional wresting to be a sport, it may just be a case of trying to fire up his base.
