Preference for realistic art predicts support for Brexit

Summary:
Here is part of the abstract from Noah Carl, Lindsay Richards, and Anthony Heath: Controlling for a range of personal characteristics, we found that respondents who preferred all four realistic paintings were 15–20 percentage points more likely to support Leave than those who preferred zero or one realistic paintings. This effect was comparable to the difference in support between those with a degree and those with no education, and was robust to controlling for the respondent’s party identity. Via the excellent Kevin Lewis.   The post Preference for realistic art predicts support for Brexit appeared first on Marginal REVOLUTION.
