Do you mean that all of those factors push you in the direction of being more conservative? If so, I'd dispute the first one.
Actually, thinking about it, I'd dispute all three.
I'm not surprised with the thrust of the Telegraph article - it all ties in with many lifters' belief systems about themselves, the so-called 'fundamental attribution error', their beliefs about progress and so on.
National culture has a huge influence, though. The UK Sugden site, which I follow, is politically diverse, but there's a surpirisingly strong left-leaning element. Every US based site I've been on is predominantly politically conservative (by UK standards).
