More intensive ancestral kinship ties predict more right-wing attitudes on cultural dimensions.
Study 1: All tests and specifications show that individuals whose cultural background has more intensive kinship ties are significantly more likely to harbor more right-wing attitudes towards gay rights and gender attitudes (Specification 1 & 2, about 15% more likely, Specification 3, about 7% more likely). Study 2: The data here also supports this hypothesis (right-wing attitudes are 5-6% more likely, depending on the model).
