Right-wing politicians are seen as more physically attractive than socialists and get more votes because of their good looks, a new study has found.The science has spoken.
Researchers showed photos of anonymous political candidates to 2,500 people, and asked them to judge them on a scale from 'very ugly' to 'very beautiful'.

The study was carried out by experts in Sweden and Finland, and the politicians used were 1,357 Finnish council election candidates.

Researcher Niclas Berggren at Sweden's Ratio Institute said: 'We found those candidates on the right were considered to look better than those on the left.
