Democrats And Republicans Even Travel Differently

It's already the start of the 2016 campaign season, and Democrats and Republicans are lining up to tell you just how different they are. From fiscal policy, to family values and now even travel.

Hipmunk, a consumer-oriented online travel company, surveyed the travel preferences of over a thousand people who identify as either Republican or Democrat.

As with most things in politics the Elephants and the Donkeys are pretty similar whether they like to admit it or not. A penchant for sunny skies and sandy beaches is about the same across party lines. Around 30% of Democrats and Republicans prefer vacations by the sea.

But urban destinations are a little more partisan, only 9 percent of those who identify with the GOP are city slickers, versus 21 percent of Dems.

The vast majority of Elephants drive to the airport -- nearly 70 percent -- whereas only half of Donkeys do. And public transportation? Fugettaboutit if you're a red state -- only 8 percent admitted taking the ole subway or bus to the airport.

When it comes to lodging, liberals are all about the boutique hotel. Half of Democrats say they prefer boutique hot-spots. Right-wingers are a little more split with their preferences between luxury, boutique and resorts.
