PVV voters are most likely to be overweight

People who vote for the Socialist Party and anti-Islam PVV are most likely to be overweight, according to market research group Ipsos.

Ipsos found 66% of PVV and 61% of SP voters had a body mass index of over 25. SP supporters are most likely to be extremely heavy. Some 30% of them had a bmi of over 30, the Telegraaf reports.

The D66 Liberals are least likely to have weight problems, followed by the Christian Democrats.

Research by Amsterdam University last year found PVV supporters are most likely to believe in UFOs and government conspiracy theories.
