Liquor Ties Wine as the
Second-Favorite Adult Beverage A new Gallup poll says that in terms
of first choice, liquor and wine are
nearly on equal terms in America.
Both beverages still lag
behind beer, the United States'
most popular alcoholic drink.
Results from the poll say that 29% of adults named liquor as their first drink of choice, a jump from 19% in 2018.
Wine is barely holding onto its lead
at 30% in the poll and has seen
a drop in recent years.
In terms of income, the poll adds
that those making less money
are also choosing liquor.
For those taking in $40,000
or less, 33% picked liquor
while wine was the choice for 23%.
Choosing wine increases for those
making more money, as it jumps to 35%
in relation to people at the $125,000 mark.
For liquor, the figure falls to 25%
in the six-figure category.
