Back in the day, hippies liked to call cops pigs, but this video shows that it's leftists who deserve the title.
Interviewers rated General Social Survey participants' homes for dirtiness. Ratings varied from "very clean" (1) to "dirty" (5). I calculated means by political orientation (sample size = 2,260):
Mean dirtiness score
Extremely liberal 2.15
Slightly liberal 1.68*
Slightly conservative 1.79
Extremely conservative 1.71
*p < .05, two-tail test, significantly cleaner than extreme liberals
Extreme liberals are significantly dirtier than either slight liberals or conservatives.
