Infographic of the day: Which blogs and books are preferred by Romney and Obama voters?

More politico-cultural candy from BuzzFeed. I’m surprised to see a liberal skew towards Lord of the Rings and, especially, Harry Potter. I would have guessed, given their popularity, that the split for each was more even.
As for blogs, turns out we’re RINOs compared to Red State and the Daily Caller but National Review and the Weekly Standard are RINOs compared to us. (Or, more likely, as big-name conservative pubs, they have more curiosity-seekers in the center and the left checking in with them to sample right-wing opinion and that’s tugging them a bit to the center.) The two big surprises: Judging by Facebook “likes,” Politico’s actually a slightly right-of-center site. And Drudge is way, way, waaaaaaay more preferred by righties than lefties, more so even than Fox News. Everyone reads Drudge, though, so the only way I can think to explain the strong skew is that most of his splashier scoops and teases the past few months have been hits on Obama and Democrats. Those are probably getting a tremendous amount of “likes” from conservatives, and that’s why the skew is so sharp. Under normal non-campaign circumstances, I’d bet he’s somewhere in the vicinity of where National Journal is on the chart.
