Hamburgers vs. hot dogs: What voters and politicians prefer, based on their politics

As Americans celebrate the 4th of July, it appears party lines play a role in what we eat during this national holiday.

A new Axios and Survey Monkey Poll shows people who voted for President Trump would prefer to eat hamburgers, while Hillary Clinton voters actually prefer hot dogs on July 4th.

It is unclear however if both sides agree that a hot dog is, in fact, a sandwich. While Trump voters appear to drink more beer on July 4th than Clinton voters, a small percentage of both drink beer. Six percent of Clinton voters and eight percent of Trump voters like to drink beer on the 4th.
