Recent studies show that vain people are more likely to be Republicans!

Donkeys may be stubborn, but it seems that elephants are vain.

In a recent study, Stanford University students Peter Belmi and Margaret Neale found that how people see themselves has a strong effect on their political and social beliefs.

According to their research, people who think of themselves as attractive are more likely to support "group-based dominance and belief in legitimizing ideologies".

This means that, the more attractive you think you are, the more likely you are to agree with classical family values, social class structure, and other common Conservative ideas.

On the other hand, people who see themselves as less attractive are more likely to support Liberal ideas. According to the study, these individuals show a higher regard for movements that defend social equality.

Though not all Republicans are vain and not all Democrats lack vanity, it seems that how highly you think of yourself affects how you see the people around you. In other terms, the more humble you are, the more respect you show toward others, at least on a political level.
