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.
