    I live in a red state with two dogs, a cat, a rabbit and a hedgehog. What does that say about me? I love animals! And I have a very liberal friend who has 3 dogs and a cat and a very conservative friend who has 2 dogs and 2 cats. They love animals too! This seems like one of those stupid little quizzes you see in teen magazines. Maybe we will discover something more significant if we find out how many bird feeders are in your yard!

    Interesting. I've always been my own person. I used to be a Republican who believed in women's rights, including abortion rights, gay rights, a progressive social agenda, but in the INDIVIDUAL's RIGHT to own firearms. I'm also a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment. I started out as a dog owner, but since 1976, I've been a cat owner. You can't fool a cat. You have to work for their friendship and loyalty. I do watch out for both, though, Guardian with the ASPCA, and member of HSUS, as well as our local P.A.C.A in Albuquerque, NM (user name is a cryptonym)

    I guess I'm a true oddball. I never married and have no kids but I care about generational theft and I'm a republican with a cat.

    Exactly. Like the article mentioned, city dwellers tend to be more liberal and have less space for dogs. A cat can do fine living out his life in an appartment.

    I'm usually a little skeptical of theses either/or memes. For example,that "Women are from Venus, Men are from Mars" thing that was popular several years ago - it just doesn't hold up well against facts.

    For example, NASA's robot Curiosity rover landed on Mars. So far, it has found no sign of ESPN, beer or porn. This proves men are not from Mars.

    Yep, this is a classic example of a "cohort study." That's where they take a look at certain groups of people and certain other findings and try to infer some kind of causal relationship. My undergraduate Statistics prof proved by using a cohort study that owning a 0-2 year old Cadillac dramatically reduces your incidence of heart disease. Can you figure out why?

    I have never thought of it that way, but that theory rings true with my friends, family and aquantences. The ones who are democrats are the ones that have cats and the republicans are the ones with dogs.

    This story is a good example of how the media continually tries to polarize the American People. We should all turn off our TVs for 1 week.

    There are not as many stereotypes as they like to point out. Like one poster above mentioned, be your own person. If you want to be a Republican environmentalist who has 3 cats, do it. If you want to be a Democratic CEO for Monsanto with a pack of hounds, be our guest. In America anything is possible.

    In an unrelated and unscientific study Lesbians tend to be dog lovers and gay men cat lovers. What all this means I really don't know.

    Like with all parts of life, Democrats hold no one accountable for their actions so therefore they like cats that do whatever they want with immunity. Dogs have the common sense accountability to mind and do what they are told for the good of society.

    Makes perfect sense to me. GOP needs the unconditional love and attention, and control over all they survey. They don't get it from people, so they seek it out from their pets.

    Seems strange that the red state dog owners shunned voting for a fellow dog owner in the White House. Or, maybe, this is a meaningless study...

    Romney is a dog owner as well, he just needs to let them in his car. One of his much less proud moments. I don't consider dog ownership when voting though.

    I think strapping your dog to the roof of the car Clark-Griswold style nullifies and voids any claim of ownership of said dog. It probably figures out to be a negative value for ownership.

    Every person I know well enough to know how many pets they have both cats and dogs, or don't have any pets.
