OUR WAL-MART HAS A DUNKIN' DONUTS IN THE LOBBY:

NPR Poll: Obama, McCain Even In Swing States (Mara Liasson, September 24, 2008, Morning Edition)

Even though the two candidates are viewed favorably by about the same number of people, there are some big cultural splits. Of people who get their coffee at Starbucks, 42 percent favor Obama while 39 percent prefer McCain. Of people who frequent Wal-Mart, 58 percent favor McCain while 33 percent prefer Obama.

There's an excellent popular expression of the sort of anti-elitism that Democrats fail to understand in the new McDonald's coffee ads, where normal people are miserable because they have to pretend they like Starbucks.
