As much as HR might wish it wasn’t so, politics are part of the workplace.

From pleasant enough water cooler talk to heated discussions, nearly half of Americans talk politics at work.

However, depending on your job, what that conversation sounds like might vary. It could be pretty liberal, pretty right, or somewhere in the middle.

Just like some states and cities lean one way on the political spectrum, so too do some jobs. We analyzed political donations by job title to determine how “red” or “blue” popular jobs are.

You can scroll to the bottom to see the full list– and where your job lands.

But first, here are some of the most partisan jobs:

Very Republican And Very Democratic Jobs

How We Determined This

We analyzed data from the FEC on campaign contributions by job title.

We only looked at Republican and Democrat donations for the purpose of this article (Sorry, Libertarians and Green party members.) The greater percent of Democrats, the more blue the job. Similarly, the more Republican donors, the more red.

Since this information is based on job title, provided by the donor, there is some variance. For example, an OB-GYN might choose to identify themselves as a physician or an OB-GYN. A programmer and developer have remarkably similar jobs, but based on how they choose to fill in that box, are categorized differently.

The full list is below, sorted by total number of donors (Republican and Democrat.)
