Cherwell, an student newspaper of Oxford University, writes that "despite 'scruffy' appearance, left-wing scholars are more attractive than well-groomed right-winger counterparts, psychologists say". The writer argues against a study by Niclas Berggren, IFN, and more suggesting that "attractiveness of political candidates correlated with their politics, with right-wingers supposedly found more attractive that their left counterparts".
