Is your political behavior genetically predetermined?  According to new research done at the University of California (at Sandiego) researchers have identified a gene called DRD a dopamine receptor that predisposes people to certain political views.

“Dopamine is a neurotransmitter affecting brain processes that control movement, emotional response, and ability to experience pleasure and pain. Previous research has identified a connection between a variant of this gene and novelty-seeking behavior, and this behavior has previously been associated with personality traits related to political liberalism.”(Science Daily http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/10/101027161452.htm)  .  Dopamine is a neurotransmitter affecting brain processes that control movement, emotional response, and ability to experience pain and pleasure.

Lead researcher James H. Fowler of UC San Diego and his colleagues hypothesized that people with the novelty-seeking gene variant would be more interested in learning about their friends’ points of view and therefore have more friends and be exposed to people with various backgrounds and social beliefs.  According to the research, it is the combination of the social that takes place during the adolescence and the genetic factor as well that make these people more liberal.
