At lunchtime, hunger is a universal feeling that both Republicans and Democrats experience. However, when our team analyzed the political giving history of some of America’s largest restaurant chains, it became clear that the places we patronize aren’t always as non-partisan.
According to FEC data detailing political contributions made since 1980, some of America’s largest eateries skew decidedly conservative. Domino’s Pizza received the most conservative Crowdpac score at 7.5C, while McDonald’s exhibited more moderate tendencies with a score of 2C.
We’ve all been reminded to exercise moderation when patronizing fast-food joints. But given the data, for now we’ll have to keep this advice confined to patties, and not politics.
