Conservatives are MORE attractive than liberals: Scientists claim

Scientists know that being attractive influences huge areas in a person's life, including how much they earn and what they enjoy doing in their spare time.
Now, a new study claims that beauty can make a person right-wing. 


The research argues that people who are attractive are more likely to be [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]because they are 'blind' to the struggles of those who are less fortunate.




The [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]was conducted by Dr Rolfe Daus Peterson, a political scholar from Susquehanna University and Dr Carl Palmar, assistant professor in politics at Illinois State University.


The researchers claim that there is 'good reason to believe that individuals' physical attractiveness may alter their political values and worldviews'.



The scientists said in their study that attractive people have better social skills and are more popular, competent and intelligent due to something known as the 'halo effect' - where an individual's view of other people is altered by bias and stereotypes.


But their beauty also makes them less empathetic towards those who find life a struggle, making them more likely to be conservative.



The authors also noted previous studies have shown good-looking people are treated better than others, achieve higher status and are happier, and so are more likely to see the world as 'just' place.



To come to this finding, the scientists took figures from the 1972, 1974 and 1976 American National Studies surveys that asked those taking part to evaluate the appearance of others.


The survey also looked at participants political beliefs, income, race, gender, and education.


The researchers then compared those results with the Wisconsin Longitudinal Study (WLS) that looked at the characteristics of over 10,000 high school students who were rated by others on their level of beauty. 



By combining these results, the researchers said they found a link between political alignment and attractiveness.


They found that more attractive people have a 'blind spot' which results in conservatism.


This blind spot stops them from seeing the need for government aid and support, which is a staple of the liberal manifesto.

I imagine "scientists" have too much time on their hands.
