    I did read the article. Whether the report is valid or not is irrelevant to the problem here. The point is that this article has taken the report and warped it into something else (the title does not match the content). There are also inconsistencies in the text. Strength =/= aggression.

    Physically strong men are more likely to hold right wing political views because they believe society should be geared to personal struggle and self-preservation, an academic study claims.
    ...

    Researchers cite muscle-bound Hollywood action heroes like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris and Sylvester Stallone as evidence that aggression is linked to conservative politics.
    In other words, this is poor journalism.

    Not very closely then...

    They tend to build up their upper body strength and become subconsciously obsessed with their fighting ability, they told the journal Human Nature.
    Lead researcher Aaron Sell said men were 'designed for fighting' and the tougher they are, the more this influences their behaviour and attitudes.
    Men are better designed to respond rapidly to threats, avoid something that is thrown at them or be able to catch it, and are better at taking a punch, he said.

    Yes, the cause is aggression, and strength is the effect. This also doesn't rule out the fact that non-aggressive men can be strong too. It just says that aggressive men generally are strong. Therefore aggressiveness influences politics, not physical strength.

    I think it is likely that an increase in physical strength could also lead to an increase in aggression.

    The behavior of strong people can be perceived as aggression, since it tends to have more effect.

    I'd explain the effect of politics in the inverse. Those who feel disadvantaged are just more likely to pursue leftist causes.

    Issues with "conservatives" (more like cuckservatives) like Arnold Schwarzenegger is he continued to sell California out to the tribe. I don't see that as a sign of strength, it's a sign of weakness. Now we have an even more weak and effeminate governor, Jerry Brown the Cucked. He'll continue all anti-German and anti-White policies to purge California of its Anglo-American population.

    This last election I voted for a Wall -- not Trump, not the GOP, not the Conservative/Alt-Right/Tea Party movement. I remained in an independent party during the election. My vote was a literal, figurative, and symbolic defense to me against the Anti-Germanic and in general Anti-White forces at work in our country.

    I doubt Trump is going to take away California's federal funding like he said he would, though. I wish he would because it would greatly incentivize all the illegals to leave once they realize they can't establish themselves here with financial aid and other services.

    I'm not going to hold my breath, but I could be wrong. Trump still has 3 more years (and possibly another 4) to go.

    There is a distinct difference between someone being assertive, and aggressive.

    I think assertive men who are confident in their abilities will tend to promote more independent political views than men who lack these positive characteristics for any of a number of valid reasons. But it certainly doesn't make them weak, just jaded and cynical maybe.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.
