Kelly has sent me a link to a bit of a fun poll. It asks you a small battery of questions and then based on your answers, it matches you to the candidates left. It’s interesting. I polled exactly like I thought I would. But, maybe not for the reasons people may think.
Turns out I’m a huge Mitt Romney fan! …….. Well, not really, actually Mitt is a huge fan of me, and people like me. There are 8 candidates listed. There are two of them who are more…… malleable, shall we say? At least in rhetoric.
Mitt and Barry are actively playing to their base. So, when a bunch of conservatives have an issue they insist upon, guess what? Mitt’s all for it, surprising stuff! When a bunch of leftists are insisting on an issue, more surprising, Barry’s all for it! So, this may not tell you exactly where you line up more than where the candidates are lining up.
OTOH, it turns out, just underneath my agreement with Mitt is a close agreement with Ron Paul 82%, and right under him is Gary Johnson 77%. I’m a conservative with strong libertarian leanings. Who knew?
Another big surprise, the bottom 3 for me from the bottom up are Stewart Alexander (Socialist party), Jill Stein, (Green party), and then Barrack Obama.
Anyway I thought it was fun, and thought some of you guys and gals might enjoy it as well.
