Everyone has a certain “way” they like to travel – but did you know studies show that liberals and conservatives actually have different priorities when traveling?
From where they go, to what they do, and even how they do it – liberal and conservative Americans have completely different ideas on what it means to take a real vacation.
And the main difference between conservatives and liberals just might surprise you.
Liberals Are More Likely To Travel Overseas
According to a 2019 Simmons National Consumer Study, liberals are more likely to have a valid passport than conservatives.
NBC News reported:
“More than half of all liberals, 57 percent, say they have a valid passport, while slightly less than half of conservatives, 48 percent, say the same thing.”
Maybe conservatives aren’t yet done exploring every corner of our own beautiful nation.
And it’s likely conservatives have larger families – so the cost of six plane tickets to Italy is simply not affordable.
Of course, this is just data – it doesn’t mean if you travel overseas you are a leftist!
Shocking – Liberals Prefer Big Cities
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that liberals prefer to vacation where their people are – in large coastal cities like New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle.
As a conservative, it may be fun to visit and check out the scenery and explore these popular sites – but you are literally entering the belly of the beast.
We’ve even provided a conservative’s guide to our nation’s Capital – now run by Biden and his leftist bureaucrats – if you’re still brave enough to visit DC.
But truthfully, many conservatives don’t even want to deal with leftist cities so they skip them all together.
Conservative Vs. Liberal Hobbies
When it comes to hobbies, the study revealed that liberals and conservatives prefer different interests – with conservatives having a slight preference for activities like fishing and golf, while liberals prefer fine dining and lounging on the beach, reported NBC News.
Well yeah, that sounds about right.
I’ll take a hole-in-the-wall spot to sink my teeth into a good burger or authentic Mexican food over forking out large sums of money for “fine dining” every time.
Rubber chicken? Count me out.
Street tacos? Give me some more!
And while the study showed only a slight difference, I think liberals and conservatives can agree there’s nothing better than relaxing on the beach (maybe after a morning of fishing or golf).
I betcha most conservatives don’t think twice about what’s in their sunscreen – as they’d rather, ya know… not get cancer… than the “effects of chemical sunscreens on reefs,”.
And it is pretty funny that teenage environmentalist Greta Thunberg organized a strike and refused to go to school until her “climate change” issues were addressed…
… when statistics now show it’s her own people “damaging” the environment by flying the most.
Oh the irony.
