Study Shows Republicans Tip MUCH MORE Generously Than Democrats

Study Shows Republicans Tip MUCH MORE Generously Than Democrats

I’m absolutely not surprised by this. A new study has come out that shows Republicans are MUCH better tippers than Democrats. It’s been my experience in going out with both liberals and conservatives in Vegas over a number of years, that Republicans tip far better in restaurants, casinos and hotels. Most of the liberals that I personally know, tip the very minimum or sometimes not at all. Not all liberals, but quite a few of them. I consider it good manners to tip a good waitress or waiter far more than the minimum. They give their all to serve you and their livelihoods depend on tips. I guess it comes from being a waitress at one time in my life.

The only one that surprises me on the list below is Northeasterners. I would swear that Westerners are far more generous when tipping, but who knows? The rest of that list falls right in line with what I already thought. I will say this though, when I pay, I usually leave a tip of 25% or more, so if women were picking up the check more, they could well be on that list. Maybe that’s something for feminists to strive for. Pay your own way.

A new survey offers a rare look at who the big spenders really are when it comes to leaving gratuities for the wait staff at sit-down restaurants. Topping the list of best tippers:

  • Men.
  • Republicans.
  • Northeasterners.
  • Baby boomers.
  • Anyone who tips with a credit or debit card.

Those groups all leave a median tip of 20 percent of the total bill when they dine out, making them the best tippers among diners at U.S. restaurants. Women, by contrast, leave a median tip of 16 percent, and the median for Southerners and Democrats is 15 percent.

University experts who study tipping, and alters interviewed by, say the results ring true. Michael Lynn, a Cornell University professor who studies gratuity practices, says many factors influence tipping habits. But in general, he says, the wealthier you are, the more you tend to plunk down at the end of the night.

It’s also true, that the more money you have, the more likely you are to tip bigger. That’s why those using debit and credit cards tend to tip more. It doesn’t hurt as much. So, let’s see here… older, white, conservative, Republican, men from the Northeast tip more. Go figure. Could it be that some of these ‘white privileged males’ tip more because they make more money, in turn because they work harder? I can feel liberals having a meltdown as I write this.

Think back in politics. Bernie Sanders is notoriously cheap and stiffs servers all the time. The same can be said for both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. But George Bush was incredibly kind and generous to those that served him. And guess what? Donald Trump has them all beat. He makes sure to reward good service wherever he goes. That says an awful lot about a leader in my book.
