Science behind the underlying genetic effects

Is it possible that a political DNA test could predict your political leanings? Most people take their political views seriously, often choosing friends and family based partly on shared political viewpoints.

For many, the idea that a political affiliation DNA test could predict something so important is a little bit off-putting.

However, it’s important to think about the practical potential of this kind of research. If our political views are affected by our DNA, we may be able to see across the political divide a little bit more clearly. Knowing that someone has a particular political perspective because of a characteristic determined by genetics can make it easier to understand their point of view.

Perhaps most importantly, knowing that a political affiliation DNA test can help determine someone's political viewpoints may make us stop trying to change each other's perspectives so aggressively. This could lead to much more civil conversations around politics.

A comprehensive DNA analysis of the following economical and political preferences can lead to a deeper understanding of your political leanings.

Quiz to measure your political view

A custom quiz measures your political views on immigrant, economic, environmental, and equality policies. The result will indicate your likely political orientation, blue indicating liberal leanings and red indicating conservative leanings.

Science behind the report

Researchers from Cornell University and New York University investigated the underlying genetic effects on economic and political preferences.
They used single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) data obtained from 9,836 Swedish twins. A part of the Political Attitudes Battery questionnaire was used to measure five dimensions of political preference: immigration/crime, economic policy, environmentalism, feminism/equality and foreign policy. As for measuring economic policy, participants were asked to indicate their views of various proposals, such as “Decrease the public sector,” “Decrease taxes” and “Have more private companies in health care.” Answer options were presented in a Likert-like scale with five choices ranging from “Very good proposal” to “Very bad proposal.” The results revealed that moderate correlations may exist between economic policy support and the specific genetic markers evaluated.

It's exciting to think that a political DNA test could actually predict things about our political views. There are many questions that still need to be answered about how this kind of testing will apply in our lives. However, the fact remains that political affiliation DNA testing is a fascinating area of research that will likely shed light on people and politics.
