Soft Drinks are non-alcoholic carbonated beverages, often sold in cans or bottles; in some contexts, any non-alcoholic ("hard") drink is considered soft.
Popular styles of soft drinks include cola, lemon-lime sodas, root beer, ginger ale and fruit-flavored drinks. For many of these, diet varieties are available as well. For varieties which are commonly caffeinated, non-caffeinated versions are sometimes available.
Drinking soft drinks (especially soda) is very popular for conservatives. In fact, most conservatives do prefer regular soda than diet, while liberals, on the other hand, are more likely to not drink soda, as they prefer more alcoholic drinks instead.
