Politicians height thread! How tall are the candidates?

Discussion in 'The War Room' started by SouthoftheAndes, Feb 13, 2016.

  1. 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).

    So Jeb is the only one who can reach the top floor of Trump tower
     
  3. ^ lol maybe its reserved for the 6ft and over crowd.

    but seriously. Id say Cruz is around 5'8 1/2, he wears boots a lot which will make you about 1 1/2 inches taller or 3.8cm.

    i don't think it matters that much. charisma plays a much more important factor in electing politicians nowadays.

    Who measured Rand Paul, the UFC?
    He must cut height when he's not running for POTUS.

    One more plus for Trump. The taller candidate tends to win the general. Emphasis on "tends" before someone takes that statement as an unavoidable truth. Also, Presidents tend to be taller than the national average.

    They should have done a GOP basketball game during NBA All-Star weekend. Team Trump vs Team Cruz. Winner gets the GOP nod.

    This isn't 1776. Presidents don't lead armies onto the battlefield anymore.

    If he's intelligent with sound policies and can lift a fountain pen, then aesthetics are secondary.

    This isn't the fucking Miss America contest.

    There is an ongoing joke/coincidence about French Présidents all having to be at least 7 centimeters (2,8 inches) taller or shorter than their predecessor. François Hollande broke the rule but was still taller than Sarkozy :D

    Putin is 170 cm and IMO he carries the most pondus.

    edit: oh, yea. What
