Front door republicrats

Veritas et Venustas has a political 'front door test':

If your front door opens onto a sidewalk, you're probably a Democrat.

If your front door is more than 25' from your street, you're probably a Republican.

And if your front door opens into a hallway, like mine? Does that perhaps make you a Libertarian? We can always hope so.

    Another study that just came out, "The Causes of City-Suburban Political Polarization: A Canadian Case Study" by Alan Walks (2006, Annals of the Assoc. of American Geographers) says this:

    "In the U.S., ...since the early 1980s place of residence (in an inner city or suburb) has had increasingly important independent effects in structuring both party preferences and political
    attitudes. These effects remain strong and statistically significant even after controlling for region of residence and sociodemographics..."
