I’m making up a brief little survey on the fly, because I’m noticing some trends in people’s hobbies and interests versus their political beliefs. I’m curious to see if there’s any meat to it, so I figured I’d ask the audience.

These questions will be yes/no or A/B style questions. If you don’t know or would rather not say, just say “abstain”, or something to similar effect.
