Strong men vote right!

News.com.au reports:

MEN with strong upper body strength are more likely to vote conservatively while physically weaker males have a greater tendency towards left-leaning views.

And stronger men are more likely to protect their resources while weaker males favour more socialist views such as wealth distribution, researchers claim.

Maybe a weak body and a weak mind go hand in hand ๐Ÿ™‚

Measuring bicep size and socio-economic status, researchers collected data from hundreds of men from the US, Denmark and Argentina which all have different welfare systems.

They found that irrespective of where the men came from, those with strong upper body strength were less likely to support a welfare system.

Interestingly, the researchers found no link with upper body strength and political persuasion among women.

Someone should apply for a grant to replicate this research in New Zealand and see it if applies here also.
