Harvard: July 4th Parades Are Right-Wing
By PAUL BEDARD
Posted: June 30, 2011

Democratic political candidates can skip this weekend's July 4th parades. A new Harvard University study finds that July 4th parades energize only Republicans, turn kids into Republicans, and help to boost the GOP turnout of adults on Election Day.

"Fourth of July celebrations in the United States shape the nation's political landscape by forming beliefs and increasing participation, primarily in favor of the Republican Party," said the report from Harvard. [See political cartoons about the 2012 GOP field.]

"The political right has been more successful in appropriating American patriotism and its symbols during the 20th century. Survey evidence also confirms that Republicans consider themselves more patriotic than Democrats. According to this interpretation, there is a political congruence between the patriotism promoted on Fourth of July and the values associated with the Republican party. Fourth of July celebrations in Republican dominated counties may thus be more politically biased events that socialize children into Republicans," write Harvard Kennedy School Assistant Professor David Yanagizawa-Drott and Bocconi University Assistant Professor Andreas Madestam. [Enjoy political cartoons about President Obama.]

Their findings also suggest that Democrats gain nothing from July 4th parades, likely a shocking result for all the Democratic politicians who march in them. [Check out editorial cartoons about the Democrats.]

"There is no evidence of an increased likelihood of identifying as a Democrat, indicating that Fourth of July shifts preferences to the right rather than increasing political polarization," the two wrote.

The three key findings of those attending July 4th celebrations:

When done before the age of 18, it increases the likelihood of a youth identifying as a Republican by at least 2 percent.
It raises the likelihood that parade watchers will vote for a Republican candidate by 4 percent.
It boosts the likelihood a reveler will vote by about 1 percent and increases the chances they'll make a political contribution by 3 percent.
What's more, the impact isn't fleeting. "Surprisingly, the estimates show that the impact on political preferences is permanent, with no evidence of the effects depreciating as individuals become older,"said the Harvard report.

Finally, the report suggests that if people are looking for a super-patriotic July 4th, though should head to Republican towns. "Republican adults celebrate Fourth of July more intensively in the first place."

Branding that small percentage of Humans who gain admission to Harvard obviously does something bad to their brains.

Have a beer guys, and watch 1776 on TV this weekend. Only show I've ever seen where you know the outcome and sit riveted.

This is true.

This is...an interesting hypothesis.

Wow....guess I'll freeze the steaks and throw away the fireworks if I'm not a good enough American to celebrate.

If you can afford steak rather than burgers perhaps you already are Republican

If you get the steaks on sale they're not much, if any, more that burgers given you don't have to buy buns, tomatoes, lettuce and pickles to eat a steak. And if it's going to cost about the same, all things factored in, a good T-bone beats a hamburger almost any day.

Yeah. Too bad they run Washington, Wall Street, the NYC Financial District and basically, the world.

And isn't it peculiar how all those right-wingers who vilify the Ivy League would pay whatever it took PLUS their left nut to get their kid into one.

Boy, a little bit of levity sure brought back a heavy response. And, considering our financial plight, perhaps it is too bad they run the world

Sorry, no offense. Obviously I riffed off your post. No hijack was intended.

No offense taken. In my neighborhood most parents would go the full eunuch and offer up both nuts

The 1 to 4% coorelations in the study are pretty minimal to make much of a prediction. Maybe a few more of those attending are already predisposed to favor the GOP?

Like lapel flag pins, attending a parade is a fairly superficial show of patriotism anyway. Let's see the stats on which group is more inclined to fudge on their taxes, which to me is very unpatriotic.

I feel the same way about the 50% that don't pay taxes and suck off others. Lets blame the rich, people actually creating jobs, than talk about what really needs to be cut. The military industrial complex and of course the ponzi entitlement programs. Lets not talk about corporations like GE that pay next to nothing in taxes. Let the tax slaves pay more. Brilliant.
