I’m not usually a big fan of online polls/quizzes, but came across one today that is very thorough and, in my case at least, quite accurate. The website iSideWith.com has put together a quiz designed to show you how you line up ideologically with the different political candidates. It’s nice that you have the option of taking it as a fast quiz, with simple “yes” or “no” answers to a few questions on important issues, but there are options to “choose another stance” with a more detailed answer, as well as identifying how important a given topic is to you. As if that weren’t enough detail, for many categories you can click an option to see more questions.
I’m fairly certain that no one is going to be surprised at my results, which easily identified my top choice in the upcoming presidential election:
After you take the quiz, you will see even more details about your results. For instance, you can see exactly how each candidate answers each question in the quiz, and how you line up with others in your state.
Whether or not your vote this Fall is already determined, you might learn a few things you didn’t know about some of the candidates. Take the quiz, and if you like, leave a comment with your results!
