    There is significant research on this very question — you can search political affiliations across demographics. There is a difference between unfounded stereotypes and descriptive statistics. Generalizing this post as a stereotype is a lazy way to dismiss very real correlations with interesting implications.

    Research based PhD and work in tech now — supported Sanders initially but ultimately voted Clinton in the primaries and proudly will now. FI has an MBA and works in Marketing and has supported Clinton all along.

    I have a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree from secular universities.

    I do not support either candidate based on his or her qualities as an individual or his or her qualifications as a leader. I will be voting based on key party platform ideals that best reflect my faith and values.

    My education is that I am a living, breathing, American woman so I will never, ever, ever, ever, vote for Trump.

    That said, I’m an attorney. Voting for Hillary.

    Me: MBA with a focus in marketing. Lead a strategic execution team at a Fortune 500 company – focus on financial services.  

    Fiance: Bachelors in Communication. Works as a quality analyst in the financial industry. 

    Both will be voting Republican. From a policy perspective, we simply align more with the GOP. I’m looking at this purely from a fiscal/economic perspective. I am socially much more progressive. Neither one of us could ever vote for HRC. As the daughter of a high ranking military officer (now-retired) who has interacted with her through his career, I’ve heard far too much about her treatment of our military to ever even consider her. Doesn’t even take into consideration the other massive issues there are.

    I have a BA in political science. I’m a registered independent, with extremely liberal leanings. I had high hopes for Bernie Sanders, but I guess I’m voting for Hillary now.

    Will be graduating with a double major in advertising/public relations and marketing with a minor in…hell, I finished it two years ago and am not entirely sure the exact title. Something akin to professional writing, because PR reps need to be solid writers. 


    SO will be graduating with a computer engineering degree and has interned and worked for both Fortune 500 and two fortune 100 companies. 


    We we are not voting for either of these failures. If we do buckle up to vote, likely will be for Johnson.

    Me: BA Theatre Performance; in graduate school studying for my MS Dance/ Movement Therapy. I’m working in a therapeutic preschool now, and will be a creative arts therapist. Also aiming for my PhD Psychology in a few years. 

    Fiance: BFA Film; one year MFA Media Studies; currently in graduate school studying for MS Museums and Digital Cultures. Will be working to impliment technology into museum exhibits. 

    We are both queer/LGBTQ identifying, in our late 20’s, artists, and living in Brooklyn. I don’t actually think I know anyone in NYC our age who is voting for Trump, or at least vocal about it. We are both from the Midwest originally and have seen more of a mix there. 

    Both strongly voting for and suppring HRC. Both of us were Sanders supporters, but happy to be with her. 

    Side note: I envy the communication skills and compromise that would have to happen in order for me to be with someone voting for the complete opposite of my choice! I’m glad Fiance is also on board with HRC.
