What makes a politician unbearable to the citizens he or she was elected to represent? In American politics, we can disagree about seemingly anything and everything, but we, the voters, can all agree that when politicians consistently display certain ugly qualities, they're pretty much guaranteed to frustrate everyone.

This list compiles the worst characteristics in elected officials. We're not talking about specific political positions that might be different from your own. We're not talking about criminality or corruption. We're talking about foibles, tendencies, and character flaws that are obnoxious in anyone you know personally, but that are downright infuriating in politicians, whether they're arrogant, dishonest, humorless, or narcissistic.

So we're here to list the political character traits that really get under your skin. This is a non-partisan compilation of the most annoying character traits in politicians, from your local city council all the way to the top. If there are any unpleasant qualities we missed, don't hesitate to add it to the list!
