Not so much about the politics but I thought it was interesting to see the polarization of Whole Foods vs. Cracker Barrel based on voting patterns. I read an article about TV Shows such as Ellen vs. Duck Dynasty as well. What other items are as polarized by areas/regions etc that are similar to this.

I think Whole Foods versus Walmart would be a better comparison point, beyond the fact this topic has been beaten to death ad nauseum.

Actually I don't see Walmart as a better comparison. Walmart has made it a point to open stores in closer to liberal/urban populations (i.e. DC, Chicago), Cracker Barrel has/will not.

It's not about the company, it's the clientele in my opinion.

I guess this is why I'm an independent because I think Cracker Barrel is a poor excuse for food and Whole Foods is overpriced fufu crap

An interesting map is the one that depicts Android vs. Iphone users.

I assume Trader Joe's would have a similar reach as Whole Foods. Good prices and good food

I at least got a few chuckles out of Duck Dynasty, Ellen is cringe worthy.

Market vs restaurant doesn't seem a good comparison.
