Wait! What? Conservatives are better Looking Than Liberals? Have you Seen Donald Trump?

You can say what you want about Donald Trump but good looking is not one of those things.
According to a study published in the Journal of Public Economics, attractive-looking politicians have an advantage when it comes to winning votes — and researchers have also concluded that conservative party members from Europe, Australia, and the United States tend to be “more beautiful” than liberal candidates.
Responding to previous research that found a connection between appearance and electoral success, a team of researchers from Sweden, Prague, and Germany theorized that Republicans are better-looking than Democrats and that voters who lean right value beauty more in a “low-information setting.”
I guess since these researchers are from Europe they had to get that dig about "low-information" in there. However, I don't think this applies when it comes to Donald Trump. He looks like a beady-eyed, wizened man-baby with a freaky blond comb-over. Hillary looked like a typical grandma but not seriously ugly or anything. Maybe they compared Bernie Sanders to Paul Ryan or something.
