For Bon Appetit, by Alex Delany.
As this election has unfolded, Democrats and Republicans seem to have less and less to agree on. But there's one thing all human beings, no matter how much their opinions differ, cannot escape. They need to eat. Food does not discriminate from party to party. Late night app specials at chain restaurants draw crowds of both red and blue.
But where do they eat? And does the candidate you're supporting have an effect on your preferences? A very good question indeed. According to a Resonate poll, Clinton supporters like the grain bowls at Panera, while Trump supporters would rather opt for a short stack at IHOP. But there's one place that crosses party lines, blurring red and blue voters like some kind of Utopian dinner party with never-ending breadsticks: Olive Garden.
