Pop vs Soda vs Coke vs Blahblah

I came across this interesting map. Countywise-distribution of how people call soft-drinks. Interesting pattern. Most Republicans call soft-drinks Coke and most Democrats call it Pop. Thats why the red and blue colors. So change what you call soft drinks now, based on what your party calls it!!

Also, do note some funny things that green blip on the top of Minnesota, or near Milwaukee, or that big “Soda” county patch near Ilinois/Missouri border. What the hell is happening there? It could be sampling issues, but any other explanations? Is there a life-history kind of effect?

Btw, am just kidding about Republicans and Democrats…sad joke…
