    This is really interesting! Thanks for the link.

    I side with..

    Gary Johnson 86%
    Barack Obama 66%
    Mitt Romney 62%
    Jill Stein 52%
    American Voters 58%
    Libertarian Party 69%
    Democratic Party 66%
    Republican Party 39%
    Green Party 36%

    I also don't know who Gary Johnson is, and I don't believe in voting.

    Also interesting, I only agree with Obama on social issues, however I agree with Romney on Domestic policy, economic and immigration issues... And yet I have a higher match with Obama overall.

    My results also change drastically when I adjust the slider regarding how important the issues are to me. Which, its difficult to say how important certain issues are... for instance, legalizing gay marriage is very near and dear to me, but if a candidate had excellent foreign policy and economic stances but refused to legalize gay marriage, I'd still be inclined to vote for him over a candidate that assured the public gay marriage would be legalized, but had shakier platforms in other areas.

    I wondered the same thing, so I checked what I matched on. Stein, Anderson & Johnson, all matched on social and environmental issues, primarily pro-choice and gay rights. Never heard of any of them and wouldn't vote for any them.

    The results certainly fit my opinions on the diference between UK and US politics.

    Obama 83%
    Romney 13%
    Democrat 92%
    Republican 7%

    OTOH on the UK political scale I'm more or less a Thatcherite (i.e. to the right of all the current mainstream parties).

    Your Thatcherite comment is surprising! I think that's one reason why 'quizzes' like this are valuable to internationally attended forums like this one.

    93% Jill Stein.
    78% Obama.
    75% Gary Johnson.
    49% Jimmy Synder.
    9% Mitt Romney.
    If I had the USA's citizenship I'd have voted for Obama.

    I think my stances on the death penalty and gun control nudged me a little to the right. About where I expected. Who's Jill Stein :|

    81% Obama on foreign policy, science, social, economic, and immigration issues
    18% Romney no major issues

    82% Democratic
    17% Republican

    I liked this quiz, as I felt like *most* of the questions were fairly straightforward, or whatever. But there were a few where I almost wish I could pick more than one option, or an option only expressed part of my view.

    Like, what's the difference between saying "Yes" to Do you believe the theory of Evolution?

    and saying Yes, Evolution is a fact (the one I chose)?

    anyways, I wasn't surprised by the results

    I don't think I am THAT green.

    And I am not convinced all my answers really reflected my thoughts. Simple question ("do you support") about a complicated issue that I don't know details of is hard to answer - so I guess in some cases I would answer differently knowing what I am talking about.

    Who you side with on issues is of course only a part of a voting decision. Another important part is who you think has the best capability of actually carrying out changes in the direction you want. If I was a US citizen, I would vote for Obama.

    I did this on my mobile and it didn't transfer over.
    ~80% Jill Stein
    I was like ~70% Obama ~40% Romney.

    Not sure if they compare me to their rhetoric or their actual political actions. Either way, yeah; voting for Obama.

    My first election ever I voted green party, was Nader at the time.
