If You Like This Popular Movie, Science Says You Probably Hate Donald Trump


Confirmed: Donald Trump is Harry Potter's archenemy Lord Voldemort.

A study found readers of JK Rowling's magical series are more likely to dislike the Republican presidential candidate.

But wait, doesn't everyone in the world like the "Harry Potter" books and movies? *Scratches head*

University of Pennsylvania Professor Diana Mutz told TIME,

I think a lot of the identification of Trump's dominating kind of politics is something people associate with Voldemort. So it makes some sense that if you have been exposed to these long series of books where he is the ultimate kind of incarnation of evil, that the characteristics that are more aggressive tactics and so forth that Trump represents are less attractive, even leaving aside how it affects your policy attitudes...

Professor Mutz added that the books have subtle pro-tolerance messages, which helps explain why "Harry Potter" fans would be inclined to dislike Donald Trump and his divisive rhetoric.

Makes perfect sense. Don't challenge the study. Here's the proof:

The findings will be published in the journal PS: Political Science & Politics.

The study also revealed there is a better correlation between Lord Voldemort and Donald Trump in the books than in the film series.

All hail President VoldeTrump.
