Study: Conservatives are more attractive than liberals

Hot people are more likely to support right-wing parties because they are stronger and more successful than their more liberal peers, apparently.

That's according to a study carried out by Rolfe Daus Peterson, a political scholar from Susquehanna University and Carl Palmar, assistant professor in politics at Illinois State University. The researchers claim that never before has the effects of physical attractiveness on politics been examined on this level and that there is "good reason to believe that individuals' physical attractiveness may alter their political values and worldviews".

They said that their findings prove attractive people tend to lean towards the right because they have better social skills and are more popular, competent and intelligent due to the "halo effect" - an idea that bias and stereotypes influence the way people judge others.

Writing about their findings in the Politics and Life Sciences journal published in December 2017, the pair said that on average, hotter people have an easier life so don't see the need for more welfare, aid and government support, unlike their left-wing counterparts. The scholars said hot people lean towards the right because they grow to develop a blind spot that leads them to not see the need for more government support or aid in society - a core liberal value.

They add that attractive people don't face the same hurdles as others as their attractiveness gains them more attention and they are more successful in social situations. Their lives are generally "easier," the pair claim.

Conservatives are stronger, more successful, more popular, competent and intelligent...we could have told you that without having to conduct a study.

Now watch the DR Left become rabidly anti-science.

Meanwhile, intelligence is the greatest aphrodisiac...

Liberals think they're more intelligent than conservatives because they are

From the linked article...

First, the scholars took figures from the 1972, 1974 and 1976 American National Studies surveys that asked those taking part to evaluate the appearance of others.

Yeah, well righties tend to be more vapid, shallow and idiotic than lefties.

Hence why you'd count being "better looking" as a reasonable or important measure.

Just like high school. *rolls eyes*

My favorite line from GoT is this:

That's why I know "Conservative" men aren't the alphas they think they are.

They feel the need to say it.

So what are you compensating for in posting this thread? Or are you just trolling?

#19 | Posted by jpw at 2018-01-28 02:54 AM

Cons are more shallow and base, hence they are more influenced by looks? As the old Dethspud would say "Quelle sooprise".

Stormy Daniels is a Republican, and I'd rather stare at her big ole plastic twin peaks, then listen to John Kerry drone on about geopolitical economic policies.

Most of the fire-breathing conservatives are that way for the same reason that they are ultra-religious.

It's because they are insecure and ignorant.

You're are ridiculous.

Men admitting they check out B-52 sized breasts ON PORN STARS that are staring at them in the face ... is equal to legitimately questioning Natalie Portman's hypocrisy of supporting a pedophile while claiming fan-mail harmed her as a child actress ????

How many people are in the world, 7 billion? Making that about 3.5 billion men on planet Earth? And, YOU are the ONE DUDE who is above admitting that major league boobies doesn't get your attention? Ever hear of the phrase "size matters"?

The funny thing is that this article/study is not the positive thing that RoC thinks it is.

It basically says conservatives are more self centered because they have had an easier time in life, resulting in them possessing less empathy for others.

Self centered, lack of character building difficulties, lack of empathy are all VERY unattractive attributes.

Snark is NOT attractive-i'm looking at you Megan Kelley
