    Do YOU think Trump is better looking than Obama? Study suggests right-wing people are

    I've found that, in general, if you look behind a democrat candidate giving a speech, the people behind them are often less attractive than the population in general. If you look behind a republican candidate giving a speech, the people behind them are typically more attractive. The women making up feminist groups are typically less attractive than women in general. etc, etc.

    Now we have a study that shows this may actually be true, and not just my imagination:

    Do YOU think Trump is better looking than Obama? Study suggests right-wing people are more attractive than those on the left | Daily Mail Online

    a new study suggests that attractiveness of a candidate also correlates with their politics. The findings indicates that people in Europe, the US and Australia find right-wing politicians better looking than those on the left.
    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).

    'Our explanation is that beautiful people earn more, which makes them less inclined to support redistribution.'The researchers also suggest that good-looking people tend to be treated better, and so see the world as a more just place.

    This is a contender for the least-relevant topic facing us today.

    I'm not sure why anyone would spend any money to study this.

    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.

    Obama has real hair, a real skin tone (not orange), a symmetrical face and an athelete's physique. Trump is completely un****able.

    It's a new topic. What was it supposed to be relevant to? Not everything has to be entirely reverent to be interesting.

    I believe the study mentioned that as a possibility too:

    They also looked at the Finnish elections in more detail, and found that Republican voters care more about appearance in a candidate than Democratic voters.
