Becoming a successful politician not only takes skill but also aesthetic perfection.
Our perception of politicians depends heavily on looks. Once you gravitate towards a certain candidate, you try to justify their looks or you adapt to accept them. For example, I have had a Trump supporter tell me that Trump was a handsome looking man. Personally, I don’t mind how Trump looks and don’t really get the notion of his ugly hair but on the other hand, I also don’t get the notion of him being handsome. Therefore, I just think he looks like a normal person with favourable traits such as confidence and boldness.
Sometimes, ‘looks’ are underestimated and sometimes they’re overrated but they will always impact your perception.
Just look at Justin Trudeau.
