Goodreads: Obama, Romney supporters read the same amount

ADVERTISEMENT
Both Obama and Romney supporters tend to read the same amount, according to Goodreads, but Obama supporters leave slightly harsher reviews, with Obama supporters typically averaging closer to a three-star rating and Romney's closer to four (out of five).

The average Romney fan gave Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged four stars, while the average Obama fan gave it three, the site reports. Atlas Shrugged is the 1957 Objectivist screed more closely associated with Romney's running mate, Paul Ryan. Ryan (R-Wis.), the chairman of the House Budget Committee, who has called Rand an influence on his work but later said his respect for her work has become more "urban legend" than fact.
