A study by the New York Times and Siena College has revealed that the most common female name for someone voting for Joe Biden is ‘Karen’.
The figures show that Karens are more likely to vote for Biden over Trump by a 60/40 margin.
The most common female name for a Trump voter is ‘Nancy’, while the most common male name is ‘Richard’.

The ‘Karen’ meme – which came to prominence earlier this year, describes an overly interfering, obnoxious, self-entitled female who always tries to police other people’s behavior and ‘complain to the manager’.
The left tried to hijack the meme by asserting that its common stereotype was a white woman, almost always a Trump supporter, who unfairly called the police on black people because she is racist.
Its other main trope was a mentally deficient but loudly boisterous white woman who got into arguments with store employees and other customers by refusing to wear a face mask.
However, as the video below highlights, anecdotal evidence suggests ‘Karens’ are just as likely to be vehement leftist control freaks who are righteously indignant in lecturing others about not wearing masks or maintaining ‘social distancing’.
While ‘Karen’ is just a meme used to describe the behavior of people who may not actually be called Karen, the fact that a clear majority of Karens are voting for Biden goes some way to overturning the meme being used as a pejorative to ridicule people on the right and Trump supporters.
