    My best match was James Webb (VA) at 53%, but he should have scored higher. We answered some questions the same, but it was still subtracting points from his score?

    Clinton was 35%
    Trump was 33%
    Jeb Bush was last at 15%, I knew I didn't like Jeb;-)

    Bernie, Rand & Roseanne were my #1, #2, and #3.

    George Pataki was last.

    Trump came in dead-last for me. 0% match on everything. Hardly surprising.

    You know what's tragic? The decent Republicans have let their party be hijacked by someone who stands absolutely no chance of winning. And I'm not saying this as some sort dyed-in-the wool "liberal". No. I voted for Margaret Thatcher back in the 80's and supported a lot of what she stood for at the time. The dog of the UK was, indeed, being wagged by it's tail and needed a swift kick up the a**se. Maggie delivered (but then got a bit carried away with herself).

    But Trump? Trump is just a joke. I'm not sure he could deliver a pizza.

    Edit: Clinton was top of my list. 72% match overall. That surprised me. Didn't think it would be that high.

    Top 3 were Elizabeth Warren, Obama, and Jill Stein.

    Last is Lindsey Graham, then Huckabee right behind him.

    Clinton, Biden/Warren tie, Stein/O'Malley tie - 70, 65, 63

    no surprises there; my hassles with Clinton are the entourage and the judgment, not the political stances for the most part; I so wanted O'Malley to get traction but it never happened dammit. ​

    Then came Obama, Sanders -- 58, 55

    no surprise there either; I admire the President but he's acted or had to act way more centrist than I favor; my support for Sanders in the primaries was about specific domestic issues that i felt Clinton was weak on as a Dem, but I otherwise I mostly differed with him in that I'm less left on some foreign policy and trade issues.​

    At the bottom Fiorina, Trump, Cruz -- 5, 5, 3.

    Surprised they were that high and surprised I matched Huckabee one slot higher than Fiorina because I've rarely agreed with Huckabee past maybe what day it is.

    I was a little surprised at some of the rankings in the middle; I had Lincoln Chaffee ranked higher than Gary Johnson and, below them somewhere, Jeb Bush higher than Rand Paul. I like to look later at some of the answers there just to see why those turned out like that.

    A quintessential hack of a pol. You have risen in my estimation. Bonus coupon coming by drone.

    Apparently I have just as much in common with Rick Santorum as Joe Biden.

    I got Obama, Hillary, and Sanders at 48, 45, 45 respectively. I got them mostly due to social issues. On economics, I'm all over the place.

    Hey who knows. Trump flips around so much he could end up proposing student exchange programs between us and the Dear Leader's little charges. He could propose we acquire NK to helpfully ensure that China doesn't step on the Dear Leader's toes. The 51st state, ahoy! And then, finally, as the python realizes it has perhaps engulfed more than it can digest... the petition to put Dear Leader on the mainland ballot.

    Joking aside I'm going to take the matchup test again later this afternoon and see if I still have such weird results in the middle of my rankings. Bush over Rand Paul? I have to find what questions and answers triggered that fallout.

    Obama > Biden > Clinton > Sanders > Warren
    45% 43% 38% 38% 38%


    As I honestly see myself as not agreeing with much of any politician, not amazing that my highest is at 45%

    Where You Fit In

    Where your Personal score meets your Economic score on the grid below is your political philosophy. Based on the above score, you are a Populist-Leaning Liberal .

    I just did the party questions ... the interesting info I got from this is that I only agree with 5% of the Republican social issues, and 20% on economic. Hmm.

    Clinton (78%), Warren, Obama, Stein, Biden, Sanders (60%).

    Apparently I like Ted Cruz (18%) more than Donald Trump (10%), though some of the questions seemed a bit awkwardly phrased.

    Ah another one of them pesky liberals eh? :cool: but since all your scores are in what I'd call the skeptical range, you should at least get a pass from the real brickthrowers on here.

    I forgot to do the matchups over again, I still don't get why I had Bush over Rand Paul somewhere towards the fade to bottom. Too late tonight though, when I get up early I'm worthless after 9pm so just ignore me, thank you and g'night.

    Rand Paul 38%
    Barack Obama 33%
    Bernie Sanders 33%
    Jill Stein 30%
    Lincoln Chafee 28%

    So all across the board. Two independents, a Republican, a Democrat, and a Green. Only 38% in common with first place. Sounds about right.

    If you repeat the survey tomorrow you'll get a different percentage for Clinton because that's how often her positions change.
