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.

Huh? Just the opposite, in my experience (us vegans have the strength of ten men, and tend to be some other wing). Did the researchers say how men were chosen to be questioned? Did they find them on the street, in gyms (probably left-wingers don't go to the gym but work out at home, or by lifting barrels of toxic waste as they clean up the land), or door-to-door? This is like saying that "men don't make passes at girls who wear glasses" and backing it up with someone's idea of a survey.

Makes sense. Remember, earlier this year there was a study which showed that right wing-minded people have more Neanderthal DNA than Dems. So this kind of goes hand in hand.
