Height. Does it matter in elections? Some say height and physical attractiveness matters. Height it matters to everyone but does it matter for 2016 election candidates? What are the heights of the candidates running? ^^ How accurate would you say this is? Jeb always appears taller than Trump so either Trump is barely 6'3 and Jeb is a 'tall 6'3' or Trump is now a legit 190cm or so and Jeb is about 193cm (or 6'3 .984. inches tall).
