That's Disgusting

Yesterday it was the kind of vehicle you drive, today it's what you eat that tells us whether you are conservative or liberal.  Well, sort of. How disgusted you feel by disgusting things seems to be the gating factor.
No doubt your own political allegiances will heavily influence what you extract from the bulk of this research. If you’re liberal, you may be thinking, So this explains some of the other side’s nativism and hostility to immigration. But it’s just as easy to flip the science on its head and conclude, as conservatives might, that the left is composed of clueless naïfs whose rosy-eyed optimism about human nature—and obliviousness to various dangers—will only lead to trouble. - Kathleen Mcauliffe in The Atlanic
