Vote for Ugly

2017-07-19 The New Yorker and more

Alan Burdick writes in The New Yorker and more about how beauty might affect elections: "Curiously, the beauty premium seems to be of most benefit to politicians on the ideological right. Niclas Berggren, IFN, and his colleagues recently performed the head-shot test on politicians from Finland, the European Parliament, and the United States. The more attractive candidates were not only likelier to have won their elections but also likelier to lean conservative."
