We’ll be subjected to election polling results nonstop until November, but here’s a different kind of stat: Goodreads has released an infographic analyzing the literary tastes of its users based on political party. Not all of the results are particularly shocking — Mitt Romney supporters are much more likely to read the best-selling Heaven Is For Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back, which recounts Colton Burpo’s trip to meet God while undergoing an emergency appendectomy, and Republicans, as always, tend to love Ayn Rand. Interestingly, Obama supporters are harsher critics of books (and debate performances?) and are three times more likely to have read novels by Jonathan Franzen. Check out the full results below:
