Yes. Short men are more conservative

"Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough."
If anything, I have to admit I'd have guessed at a correlation between larger people and conservatism, due to some sort of Freudian belief in 'responsibility' and 'self-sufficiency' that may be less prominent in the psyche of people who are more average in stature and thus constitute the more social and communal elements of society. I think outliers on both ends are likely to be less social, less happy, and less 'normal', unfortunate as all that is -- but I wouldn't imagine that there's any real correlation between stature and political leaning.
Now, I would like to see some polls on education and political leaning, religion and political leaning, social capability and political leaning, etc.

I used to be 5'9" but I've shrunk to 5'8" over the years.
I was an anarcho-syndicalist as a young fellow, but that was before I discovered the myriad benefits of free market communism. I'm almost certain that the gradual compression in the discs in my spine are responsible.

Now that I think of it, I don't think that's true. I can think of so many tall conservatives. I'm thinking of politicians, though. Politicians, generally, are taller than average, I think. People tend to vote for authoritative figures as leaders, and they think taller implies leadership and authority. Most Presidents have been tall, for example, and the taller candidate usu. wins.
