Quiz tells which candidate best matches you

ABC News has posted a quiz that tells you which candidate’s positions best match yours. Each of the questions offers four or five possible answers, and you can only choose one. Not surprisingly, the complex issues do not lend themselves to single short answers, and there’s a good chance your particular preference isn’t even listed.

Still, I jumped in and answered the questions as best I could. According to the quiz, the best match for me is (drum roll, please … ) John Edwards, followed by Barack Obama, and Chris Dodd.

Hmm. Well, I’ll take that under advisement.

Note: March 14, 2008 – Since this quiz was originally posted, many of the candidates in it have dropped out of the race. Readers might want to check today’s post for a more up-to-date quiz matching their personal views with the remaining candidates.

  1. I don’t understand. You have many more visitors than I, but they do not comment, though your articles obviously invite debate, whereas mine don’t.

    Now I also did a quiz and would rather not disclose what the result was. Strange and rather sobering, since in theory I knew that I do not understand the US political trends.

    Maybe I ought to do a similar quiz on another site (like shopping for a more benign IQ test).

    Yes, I’d love to get more comments. Maybe most visitors are just passing through and don’t stop to read. The quiz is getting pretty outdated, with so many candidates now out of the race. And the questions really don’t allow for any nuance at all. Still, it’s kind of fun.
