The only motivation stronger than dumping Trump? Stopping global warming and curing cancer tomorrow. (At least among men, who were generally less likely than women to trade alcohol for the greater good.)
Another way to understand what dumping Trump is worth to left-leaning drinkers, consider how much money it would take to persuade the average drinker to go sober for life: $365,458.
Still don’t think it’s a big deal that people would give up drinking to see Trump impeached? Nearly 1 in 4 daily drinkers said they’d rather lose a finger than give up the strong stuff.
