Hello everyone, Are you absolutely sure about who you're supporting in the next US Presidential run? Would you like a little help choosing your candidate, based on a comparison of your position on the issues, as compared to the candidates positions? The following link is a fun little quiz for everyone. I took it, and found it accurate. My associate at the office took it, and he found it accurate. By the way, we're political polar opposites. So, go ahead and give it a try. If you care to share your results, please feel free. However, what I would most like to know is: Did you get the answer you expected? In other words, was it accurate for you? And, were you surprised? Thanks & have fun! Link: http://www.wqad.com:80/Global/link.asp?L=259460

Well mine was Hunter and Thompson at 57 each with immigration and energy being the points of disagreement. I am thinking about crawling back in my cave and sealing it shut. I know very little about either of those people.

Destiny, You definitely have my apologies! I have caused you a great deal of discomfort lately. One might begin to wonder if that isn't my life's objective, eh? Only kidding! Thanks for sharing your result, and enjoy your research about Duncan Hunter and Fred Thompson. Oh and by the way, did the result tell you that McCain was your second choice?

Hello Destiny, I've been trying to see if there is a built-in bias, and thus far I don't see one. So, I appreciate your follow up regarding your second place candidate (2nd place, taking into account the tie for your first choice). Thanks a bunch!

Hi Luna. Did you make up this test yourself? lol. Interesting for sure. My top guy came out as Sam Brownback, who I have to admit I have never heard of. My least favorable is Hillary, so I know the test is indeed accurate...lol. I have no clue as to who to vote for and many of the candidtates I did not even know of. But if this Sam guy is on the ballot, I just might vote for him. Leave it to the Internet to tell me how to run my life...lol. Thanks.

Hey Sigma, Just out of curiosity, did your second choice come out as McCain? Thanks!

I think he was third or fourth. My second choice was also someone I wasn't familiar with. Then again, these days politics is the last thing I have time for.

Neat quiz. But I found a flaw. My high score was 53 for John McCain. That's fine but we disagreed on Iraq and Immigration. These are among the most important issues. So, he is my top choice according the to quiz but we disagree on the most important things. OOPS...

Hmmm, that's interesting. I'll have to take the test again, in a number of different ways, and see what cause/effect variables are in play. Thanks for sharing your observations Redyellowblackdog.

Except for immigration & Iraq, looks like Joe Biden is my guy. Nice quiz. Thanx!

It confirmed that Joe is a viable alternative to Hillary. I've seen him on Real Time With Bill Maher and liked what he had to say. But he is much more concerned with the stability of Iraq than I am. We lost. There's nothing we can do with a group of people who resent our being there. Joe sees differently. And he is more lenient about the immigration issue as well. I'm really surprised that Hillary came up 5th. But alas, it was for fun and I had some!

I did not get the answer I expected, although it was very close. The quiz was enlightening for me because I have found a few areas I want to study further before I make a final decision. Thank you for sharing. :)

Hello DesigningLife, You're welcome! I'm glad you found the test enlightening. And, regardless of who you end up voting for, I applaud your commitment to further study of the candidates and their positions.

That is a neat quiz. The guy I got as the first choice was not who I am going to support. The candidate I am supporting was the 2nd choice though and we only disagreed on one point (one that's not a big deal to me really).

Interesting.. Kucinich came out top for me. Top 8 were all Dems, but Obama and Hillary were tied for 7/8. There was then a 6 point gap to Ron Paul in 9th.

Lowest was Thompson, Tancredo and Hunter. But hey, we agreed on line item veto, if nothing else.

Hello Bravenewworld, Were you surprised by the result?

Not particularly. I kind of knew I wasn't following too closely the specific positions of each candidate. I honestly don't know much about Kucinich, not being a real politics wonk. I think I would have to learn more before favoring him over other Dems. There was only 5 pt spread across the top 8 Dem candidates, and then 6 to Ron Paul, who is not your typical Republican. So the quiz confirms that Dems represent my views more than Republicans. All said, it should be about the policies, not some hearsay about personal life, unsubstantiated accusations, and the like, right?
