Liberal, conservative — we all love Mario

Mario politicsInfendo doesn’t lean one way or the other as far as politics are concerned; we just love Nintendo. Hint: That’s a good thing (Independents FTW!).

However, if you happen to lean to the right or left, you’ll be happy to know that Mario is welcomed with open arms everywhere. According to a recent Zogby poll, everyone loves the plucky Italian plumber:

Apparently, not only is the country “sharply divided on the topic of politics, it is also deeply split in the types of entertainment and information that appeal” to each faction. According to the survey, conservatives (which Zogby refers to as reds) make up 37% of the population and “don’t play a lot of video games, but when they do, Madden NFL and Mario are their favorites.” Liberals (or blues) make up 39% of the population and “play video games a lot more than other people,” with “Mario and The Sims” ranking at the top of their preferences.

As for moderates, the results are similar: Mario is liked by them too. In fact, I’m going to go ahead and endorse Mario and Luigi for the presidency right now. The world, I think, would be a better place.
