- Jeremy Hunt and Theresa May are officially the UK’s sexiest politicians
- With 24% of the female vote and 24% of the male vote, Jeremy Hunt and Theresa May top the list
- On the other hand, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron (3%) and Shadow Home Secretary Dianne Abbott (2%) are the least desirable politicians
- Men said that power (40%), intelligence (30%) and solvency (25%) were the most important factors behind their decisions
- Women had a similar set of priorities; intelligence (44%), power (30%) and solvency (20%).
- The results come from a survey of over 500 members on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people
With the general election just weeks away, IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, has asked its members to take part in a slightly different kind of poll, with over 500 of its members asked on which politician they find sexiest.
Surprisingly, much maligned health secretary Jeremy Hunt topped the polls, receiving 24% of the female vote.
In second place was none other than Boris Johnson (20%), followed closely by Labour MP Dan Jarvis (15%) and, oddly, Jeremy Corbyn (10%),
On the other hand, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron received just 3% of the vote, making him the least attractive politician.
John McDonnell, didn’t fare so well either; with just 5% of the vote, only Tim Farron is less attractive than he is.
Other notable entries include former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who received 7% of the female vote.
Perhaps rather surprisingly, Theresa May was voted as the sexiest female politician (24%), with Yvette Cooper a close second (20%). Green Party leader Caroline Lucas rounded off the top 3 (18%).
There was no surprise when it came to the least popular female politician however: Dianne Abbott. Receiving just 2% of the male vote, she beat Emily Thornberry (4%) and Nicky Morgan (6%) to bottom spot.
Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson also featured, as did Conservative MP Esther McVey; both received 9% of the vote.
Men said that power (40%), intelligence (30%) and solvency (25%) were the most important factors behind their decisions, while women had a similar set of priorities; intelligence (44%), power (30%) and solvency (20%).
Christian Grant, spokesperson for the site, explains:
“It’s fair to say that, on the looks front, the British political scene is missing a Justin Trudeau, Emmanuel Macron or even a Sarah Palin.
“What we do have, however, are intelligent and solvent people, and that’s where the attraction seems to primarily lie. Theresa May kitted out in lingerie doesn’t really make for a sexy calendar, but for many people, power is attractive, and she’s definitely got that in abundance.
“The same can be said of Corbyn; he’s got that cute grandad thing going on. For Tim Farron and Dianne Abbot, however, well, the latter hasn’t even mastered the basics of mathematics for crying out loud.”
