    I never thought that much about the reason, but the study has a couple of potential reasons that I found interesting to think about (not certain they are true, but they certainly are possible).


    Is this the kind of breaking news that rules your life?

    I think overall the Republicans have better looking politicians than the Democrats. Though really good looking ones are still a minority. Mitt Romney for example. That said, of course Obama is better looking than Trump. Not that Obama is drop dead gorgeous but Trump is not, and never has been, a good looking guy. Not that it matters.

    But here's another possibility:
    People on the right are more likely to let physical appearance influence their voting. As a result, the uglier ones have less chance of winning their primaries and making progress in their party.
    Your post is as stupid as the OP.

    Neither one of them is good looking but Obama is less unattractive than Trump. Obama's goofy looking and Trump is skeevy.

    Best looking candidate in recent years was Romney, although Jack Kemp was pretty easy on the eyes, too. And Gore wasn't bad when he was younger and not bloated.

    This is just really lame!
    "I sadly feel a great many Americans will feel betrayed, that they were lied to, and that sentiment will not be unjustified. You cannot campaign against Obamacare and then vote for Obamacare," Republican Senator Ted Cruz said early Friday.

    Aren't Cruz and Christie on the right?

    It's only the extremists who look that way.(extreme republicans, extreme democrats)

    Most of the voters can look either way.
