Can this study at the University of Cincinnati be replicated if other social science experts try to same methods? That’s the question people should be asking after a study at the university claimed that anger can be linked to conservative views on economics:

That according to a new study by University of Cincinnati assistant professor of marketing Anthony Salerno and University of Manitoba assistant professor Keri Kettle, who claim that “people tend to lean more economically conservative when they’re angry,” according to a press release on the University of Cincinnati’s website.

It’s a finding that caught some by surprise.

“The University of Cincinnati has yet again expressed its disdain for conservative thought,” Cincinnati Republic columnist Brad Johnson wrote, referencing a tweet on the UC twitter page captioned “Study: Anger linked to conservative economic thought.”
