HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

There's no denying politics often bring out the "ugly" in a lot of people, but a new study suggests a person's attractiveness can make a difference in their political affiliation.

While some may disagree with the findings, researchers in Europe studied people's perceptions of politicians from around the world.

It turns out, in the United States, conservatives tend to be better looking than liberals.

Researchers say good-looking people tend to be treated better in society and make more money, and therefore are often opposed to liberal programs like welfare.
