What Your Phone Says About Your Politics
BY Nancy Scola | Tuesday, February 9 2010
The San Francisco company Tulchin Research is out with some fun polling of California voters that fleshes out the intersection of tech and politics. Among the findings:
- Have an iPhone? You're likely a Jerry Brown voter. Fifty-seven percent of Apple phone-havers back Brown, a Democrat, in the California governor's race, while 31% like Republican candidate Meg Whitman; 12% might be sold on their phone choice, but are undecided in the race.
- Wait, you're a BlackBerry user? Then there's about a one in two chance that you're a Whitman fan; 38% of RIM customers prefer Brown.
Seventy-two percent of voters in the state who are under the age of 40 have a Facebook account -- which is 13 more percentage points than those who subscribe to cable television.
