US Gamers' Political Views Detailed in New Study

Among those aged 18-24, issues involving the economy and "race relations" were described as top concerns. These were followed in importance by issues involving class disparity and education.

This study was conducted for the ESA by Ipsos. It surveyed 4,147 gamers (who were 18 or older and reported playing games at least 3-4 hours per week) through an online questionnaire.


Judging by the lines about economy and class disparity being the top concern, it seems Bernie's angle would be most attractive.

But read onward! It's odd to me to see that of the 4,147 interviewed, it was oddly evenly split on the Dem VS Rep's. Even so, according to my personal analysis, there is a 24 percent of Independents whom likely are or will be for Bernie.

What was discouraging was to see a split of 48% Conservative and 38% Liberal.

Either way, I thought this poll was an interesting window into a demographic that is often ignored in polls. My opinions on it are my own. I see a demographic that is evenly divided in Dem/Rep but also mentally in line with Bernie's campaign.

What do you see?
