    Someone on here said that most track people are Democrats. Why is that?

    Ha! Mayhem to ensure . . .
    By stereotype, Dems are progressives, liberals, people who embrace change.
    By stereotype, Reps are conservatives, reactionaries, people who embrace the status quo (or even a return to 'simpler times' (sic) . . . remember how we treated all people back then? ).

    Change is inevitable, therefore Dems are always in a position to accept that change and Reps are not. Track and field is constantly evolving; records are to be broken (Joe Dimaggio's 56-game hitting streak notwithstanding!) and T&F fans eagerly anticipate that, therefore they are Democrats. [Don't tell lonewolf, who really is a Dem, but insists he's a Rep. I know this because he's always right, therefore he must, by definition, be a Dem :twisted: ]

          Wouldn't it be better to ask the person that said it?

            No one said ALL Dems are brilliant, just as not all Reps are blithering idiots . . .
            I personally knew a Republican that could walk AND chew gum at the same time! . . .

              Track did flourish in the more conservative era

                1. It is a co-ed sport.
                2. It is a global sport.
                3. It is a "minority-dominant" sport.

                All factors make the fans more left-leaning (in the context of the US sports culture).

                  There has never been a CE; there have always been pro(gressives) and cons(ervatives).

                    The person who said it reads this forum. I didn't want to mention his name.

                      I think our nation was more conservative in the first half
                      Of the 20th century - before abortion, gay rights and no prayer in schools. Back when our nation was closer to its Judeo-Christian roots!

                          Most were either Jewish or Christian unlike the current president and many of his people

                            Of course the fact that "somebody said it" doesn't necessarily make it true.

                              Many were Deists, which does not correlate with modern Christianity.
