Study Shows Democratic Men Are Wimps, More Likely To Support Welfare And Wealth Redistribution

By Susan Duclos

Once again, despite the seriousness of the scandals rocking Washington DC, IRS, AP Phone scandal and the release of the Benghazi talking point timelines emails, we find a politically humorous bit of news.

The best part of this newly reported study is we finally have an explanation for........ Harry Reid!

A study conducted by psychological scientists Michael Bang Petersen, of Aarhus University in Denmark, and Daniel Sznycer, of the University of California in the U.S, finds that men who are physically strong tend to gravitate towards right-wing political views.

Wimps, or as they so delicately describe them, "weaker men," tend to be more likely to support a welfare state and wealth redistribution.

Men who are physically strong are more likely to take a right wing political stance, while weaker men are inclined to support the welfare state, according to a new study.

Researchers discovered political motivations may have evolutionary links to physical strength.

Men's upper-body strength predicts their political opinions on economic redistribution, according to the research.

“Many previous studies have shown that people’s political views cannot be predicted by standard economic models,” Professor Petersen explains. “This is among the first studies to show that political views may be rational in another sense, in that they’re designed by natural selection to function in the conditions recurrent over human evolutionary history.”

This explains so much.

The findings were published in the journal Psychological Science.
