A person’s looks affect their politics, with beautiful people leaning toward conservative beliefs, according to findings published by two Midwestern professors.
Good-looking Americans tend to get more credit and admiration than they probably deserve, thanks to their attractiveness, thus steering their political beliefs.
“Physical attractiveness is an important social factor in our daily interactions. Scholars in social psychology provide evidence that attractiveness stereotypes and the ‘halo effect’ are prominent in affecting the traits we attribute to others,” according to political science professors from Susquehanna University and Illinois State.
“Controlling for socioeconomic status, we find that more attractive individuals are more likely to report higher levels of political efficacy, identify as conservative, and identify as Republican.”
Their findings were published last month in The Politics and Life Sciences journal.
