Perry, Gingrich, Huntsman in that order. Sadly that is woefully off as I find all three to be far too socially conservative.
My problem (and this is a very common position I find) is that Obama is MUCH MUCH too fiscally undisciplined and is perpetuating a welfare (and/or nanny) state. But the Republicans are too hell bent on legislating morality. So I'm left trying to decide which is worse.
3 out of 11 on each.
That quiz was a joke. All it showed me was how much I don't think like any of those candidates (big surprise). Obama did substantially better than all those republicans, but he still lagged a lot behind "me."
Oh and it gave me:
Ha. For me it was:
Safe to say they don't know me well. Yeah, I'd really go for Gingrich over Obama (or Paul for that matter). But really when they're trying to force you accept one of any number of unacceptable positions, it's not going to reflect where you actually stand on the issues. I picked "none of the above" on most things. I gather Ron Paul and I agree on Afghanistan, but probably for very different reasons.
Ron Paul (69%), Rick Perry (53%), Newt Gingirch (45%).
I didn't like any answer for the gay marriage question - was hoping to see something along the lines of "Repeal DOMA and legalize gay marriage on a federal level"
What a joke that is though. I'd vote for a rabid raccoon with a feces throwing and eating chimpanzee for a running mate before voting for Gingrich or Paul.
LOL, you already stated that you'd vote for Obama first
Reply of the day, if not week or month.
Huntsman, Perry then Obama.
Obama is still the only candidate who even comes close. I'll cop to being a little disappointed by that.
That bothered me too, and still does, but in a different way, once I realized that it wasn't like a standard loaded poll. In this case it only shows up that way because that is the entire range of responses available from current candidates. Every single one of the currently available candidates for President has, to a greater or lesser degree, enough of a problem with gay people that he can't just flatly stand up for laws that treat gay Americans like any other citizen. The law must repress gay people in some fashion. They merely quibble as to how.
It is depressing and appalling that at this late date we don't have even one candidate to whom this situation is ethically unacceptable.
Obama, Paul, Perry. (with poor agreement... 6/11, 3/11, 2/11 respectively).
Some of these questions, honestly, are along the lines of, "Would you prefer to be raped or have your legs cut off?" Erm, well, that actually pretty much sums up the political environment in the United States, so yeah, I guess I can't fault them on that.
Put an classified ad up where you are, vote for whoever pays you the most.
obama, then (distant) huntsman and paul.
no surprises there.
huntsman is the only one of the republicans who i would even remotely consider voting for.
EDIT: Decent poll because it does weigh questions the way you want. Caution, some Obama supporters may find they don't agree with Obama with this type of test.
What I don't like about these little test are that they weigh all questions equally. Personally I might agree with a liberal on a few social issues, but I don't weigh that heavily since I don't think it's as important as our economy and national security.
I don't feel most social issues are the role of our federal government. That goes for right and left wing social issues, as I am not gay or a minority, or a bible thumper.
On this particular site/test, you can weight each question as to whether it is more or less important to you.
They don't weight the questions equally, that's why there's a slider for each "area" before you start.
In that case I will have to do the test. I thought this was the same test my brother sent me the other day.
The questions are way too vague for me.
4. Not vote
LOL, so you didn't get the desired outcome? Was hoping for Obama to be in your top 3?
Not at all. I looked at the issues on the left side and decided they were too vague so I didn't answer any questions.
Fair enough. The TOPICS on the left are just topics, the questions are a little more in dept....though there are only a small number of questions overall.
LOL. I knew Obama would be my first answer, but followed by...Bachmann and Gingrich?!?
Obama scored 7 of 11, the others just one each.
BTW, did anybody else find the questions skewed toward the moderate/conservative side?
-Obama: 4 issues
-Huntsman: 3 issues
-Bachmann: 2 issues.
Far too vague of a quiz, especially since I have no intention of voting democrat this upcoming election. (It'll also be my first election voting! )
