Hello everybody!

I want to know where my fellow PF'ers stand on the upcoming US election. I found this neat website which calculates the candidate that would theoretically be your best choice: http://www.isidewith.com

So please fill out the quiz and indicate your outcome on the poll, not the one you will eventually vote for (because reasons...). If you wish, you can post your outcome in the thread and whether you agree with this vote or not.

Please keep political discussion in this thread to a minimum. These have their own thread.

I know. But the site includes them, so I will too. It's more a poll on "who do you agree with" rather than "who will you vote for".

Fiorina, Carly is listed twice, and she just dropped out of the race for republican candidate.

Michael Bloomberg is not officially a candidate.

Jill Stein is running (http://www.jill2016.com/), but the Green Party is outside. They would need to get signed petitions in the various states to even get on the ballot in November.

Apparently, Gary Johnson is still running (https://www.garyjohnson2016.com/)


So you want to be president - here's how.

My result is "I side with Hillary Clinton on most 2016 Presidential Election issues" at 87%. But also 87% with Bernie Sanders. I am definitely a democrat!

I would say I agree with the outcome of the poll.

I took the quiz out of curiosity. 80% Hillary Clinton. But I don't vote because I'm not a US citizen.

I took this last month.

Code:
                1/12     2/14
Hillary Clinton 98%      99%
Bernie Sanders  97%      96%
John Kasich     52%      56%
Jeb Bush        46%      43%
Donald Trump    27%      39%
Ted Cruz        27%      21%
Ben Carson      15%      10%

Well, if these trends hold up, it looks like I'll be voting for Trump in November.

Who is Mr. or Ms. Error?
Maybe statistician Marge Innovera ("margin of error")


I took the quiz answering the minimum number of questions. The results are:

Hillary Clinton (87%) - foreign policy, social, environmental, domestic policy, immigration, criminal and science issues
Bernie Sanders (85%) - foreign policy, social, environmental, domestic policy, immigration, criminal and science issues
Jill Stein (82%) - foreign policy, social, environmental, domestic policy, immigration, and criminal issues
Michael Bloomberg (71%) - social, domestic policy, environmental, immigration, and criminal
John Kasich (55%) - environmental, immigration, electoral and science issues
Marco Rubio (41%) - immigration, healthcare, electoral and science issues
Chris Christie (41%) - immigration, healthcare, criminal, and electoral issues
Jeb Bush (39%) - immigration, healthcare, and science issues
Ted Cruz (33%) - immigration, healthcare, electoral and science issues
Gary Johnson (31%) - social, immigration, and electoral issues
Donald Trump (24%) - electoral issues
Carly Fiorina (20%) - immigration, electoral and criminal issues
Ben Carson (16%) - immigration, electoral and science issues

I didn't compare answers, so I'm not sure how each agrees on specific topics.

Rubio 85, Sanders 25. On reviewing Johnsons responses, I found he turned me around on several questions so on redo Johnson might have topped out. Too bad other candidates didn't appear like Sen Paul, Dr Carson, Ms Fiorina.
