President Donald Trump has insisted the mainstream media is pushing “FAKE NEWS!” and has called journalists the “enemy of the people.”
What follows might give him a reason to rethink that opinion.
Trump’s success at winning votes — and the same success of his fellow Republican politicians, who control both houses of Congress — just might be due to their physical attractiveness.
Jan-Erik Lonnqvist, a professor of social psychology at the University of Helsinki, published a study last month that concludes conservative voters in the U.S., Europe and elsewhere value good looks in political candidates more than liberal voters. The study falls into line with a plethora of earlier research that shows good-looking people tend to earn more money and achieve greater success than those of average looks.
