Statistics Behind Love (and Politics)
Excited about Election Day 2012 tomorrow? Us too!
We couldn’t resist a little data analysis in light of the dramatic presidential race that’s been blowing up the media, and we found out some interesting facts about our members.
1. Are Coffee Meets Bagel members Republicans or Democrats?
A large percentage of our members chose to refrain from including their political stance on their profile. However, of those who did list their political stance we had 5.6 times more Democrats than Republicans members!
2. Who is more popular – Apolitical? Democrats? or Republicans?
At a first glance, there was no huge difference in popularity among the three groups:
- Apolitical members were LIKED 29.1% of the time;
- Republicans, 30.7%
- Democrats, 28.8%
HOWEVER, when we looked at the gender breakdown between our main two demographics, Republicans and Democrats, it got interesting:
- Male Republicans LIKED 29.2% of the time
- Female Republicans, 32.1%
- Male Democrats, 21.4%
- Female Democrats, 34.8%
Apparently Male Democrats are out of favor.
Our members definitely have a type – is this a clue for the Election’s outcome tomorrow night? Regardless, Coffee Meets Bagel loves all our singles, and we want to encourage EVERYONE to vote tomorrow – because whoever you vote for, your vote matters!
