Male Rock Fans Likely to Vote Republican: Survey

“If you are male and a Led Zeppelin fan, chances are you may be leaning toward voting Republican in the U.S. presidential election, according to a survey of rock radio fans released on Wednesday.The Jacobs Media’s Media/Technology Web Poll IV of more than 27,000 respondents cited stronger than expected interest in the November 2008 election among fans of rock, classic rock, and alternative radio stations.

It also found that John McCain, the Republican candidate for U.S. president, was the top pick for the Oval Office for men and classic rock partisans — those people who tune in to stations playing music from the “original classic rock era” of 1964 to 1975, comprised of bands like Led Zeppelin, The Who and Pink Floyd. Jacobs Media said the survey, conducted among 69 U.S. rock-formatted stations in markets as diverse as Los Angeles and Knoxville to Buffalo, found 84 percent of the respondents planned to vote in the November election.”

  1. People who like music from people on drugs wouldn’t vote and even wish to impeach somebody if thou inhaled marijuana once.

  2. I shudder to think what a survey of heavy metal fans would reveal about their thoughts on war…

  3. people tend to become rightwingative when go over 40 or 50s

  4. Doesn’t this make sense? People who are stuck in the past are going to go with the conservative idea right?

  5. Good point G.V., although I find it a bit ironic that many who listened to The Who’s “We Won’t Get Fooled Again” repeatedly, would vote Republican.
