    A person can be described as "Whole Foods" or "Cracker Barrel."  What does that signify?

    I have seen articles that compare the different demographics to political leanings in the area, but it is growing more frequent in media.  What does it really mean?

    If it is media it is probably referring to upper-middle class white collar workers as Whole Foods because it is a higher end more expensive shop for "sophisticated" people.  Thus, cracker barrel is likely referring to every day middle class blue collar people because cracker barrel is "homesey" and not particularly sophisticated but provides a comfortable meal at a reasonable price...

    I could be wrong but this is likely the analogy they are attempting to make.
