Which presidential candidate mirrors your opinions the most?

Post by ethanhawke33 » Fri Jun 08, 2012 7:03 am

Just a few questions and the results are quite interesting, I had never heard of Gary Johnson before 5 minutes ago...

It says Jill Stein, of whom I've never heard before, is the candidate for me. Though I am a bit suspicious as to the accuracy of this quiz. It says I side with Ron Paul on healthcare issues. I was not aware that Ron Paul wants a universal healthcare system.

My browser doesn't seem to get along with that website. :-( Oh well, maybe I'll try again later, but you gotta take those things with a big grain of salt anyway.

Yeah, I live right on the border, so I've been hearing tons of campaign ads for Mexican presidential candidates for the past few months (their election is July 1st), but I don't even know who all the American candidates are... I should probably get on that. But last I heard, Romney was way ahead on the Republican side, so won't it just come down to a choice between him and Obama anyway?

Yes, it will either be Romney or Obama... :(

GO GARY JOHNSON! WOOOOOOO!!! He used to be the governor of my current state... from what I understand, he'd probably make a better candidate than ol' Mittens. Of course, there's not a chance of him winning, so I'm not planning to throw away my vote with him, unless something dramatic happens.

I wish we had more than just two major political parties. I also wish we limited the amount of time candidates were allowed to spend campaigning.

I took one of those candidate alignment tests and got this:

93% agree with Gary Johnson
89% agree with Ron Paul
76% agree with Mitt Romney
22% agree with Barak Obama

I guess I'm kinda libertarian lol

Too bad those first two have zero chance of winning. I always find elections kinda depressing... I never seem to like either of the two main candidates that much, but it's either vote for them or throw away my vote.

I voted for and donated to Ron Paul. I knew he wouldn't win, but my vote wouldn't count anyways.

The last time I took a quiz like this it gave me Steve Colbert. This was all the way back in high school.

My faith in the system kind of died at the point that I learned my views were most in line with that of a satirist.

And apparently, currently, I side with Democrats on 86% of issues and Republicans on 56% of issues.
