The Mega-Quiz Thread.

EDIT

I changed the title. Now any quiz is allowed, not just political.



Go here:
http://www.dehp.net/candidate/

Apparently, I am strongly against the Republican view. My strongest candidate in the race is Obama. (Hilary is behind anyway.)

Not surprisingly, McCain is in the negative. I always knew I wasn't just following the pack, I am just a lefty. :)

Here are my results:

Score Candidate
-----------------

45 Kucinich
41 Gravel
34 Obama
29 Clinton
27 Edwards
27 Dodd
26 Richardson
23 Biden
16 Paul

Negative People:
--------------------------
-2 McCain
-6 T. Thompson
-15 Giuliani
-19 Brownback
-25 Cox
-28 Huckabee
-37 Tancredo
-40 Hunter
-45 Romney

What do these results mean? The results are very simple. The table below lists the candidates in the order by which they most closely matched the criteria you just entered. Some of these candidates are no longer in the race. To the right of each candidate is a list of the items which you and the candidate explicitly disagreed upon and a list of the items that you expressed support or approval of but for which the candidate's position is unknown/other. Disagreements are not listed for candidates who have negative scores.
Score Candidate Disagreements, Unknowns, Other (brown)
44 Romney Disagreements: (3) Embryonic Stem Cells, ANWR Drilling, Universal Healthcare
Unknowns/Other: (3) Guns - Background Checks, Net Neutrality, Minimum Wage Increase

This is how it works: The scores for each candidate are tabulated with very simple arithmetic. The stance you entered for each issue is compared against the stance of the candidate. If you and the candidate do not agree (IE: you marked support, the candidate opposes) points are subtracted. If you and the candidate agree, points are added. The number of points added or subtracted is determined by the weight you assigned. "Minimal" is worth one point, "important" two, and "key" is worth five points. If you OR the candidate list an issue as unknown/other, no points are added or subtracted. This is very noteworthy as many candidates have issues listed as unknown/other. This will have the effect of pushing some candidates (some more than others) towards the middle of the list. It also often results in candidates being ranked higher than others that have less disagreements. Look at the list carefully and follow up by investigating the candidates further.

I thought you wanted to vote for McCain, MF42?

For some reason, you didn't seem like a McCain kind of person to me. :)

More liberal than you though?

Funny you should say that, gta... until a few weeks ago I was gonna do it, until I heard him say some things that made me think "Holy crap, if he gets elected, it's gonna be the same bullsh*t for the next four years!" And I never said I wanted to, I just it was gonna be more likely I'd vote for him instead. So, yeah, if I do vote, I'm gonna vote Obama.

More liberal than me is correct... :P

Typo. :lol:
"More liberal than you thought?" is what it should have said. :lol:

Any way, yeah, that's why I'm more liberal., the things conservatives say. :wink:

Wow, a lot of people got Kucinich as number one...

Does the South Park mentality have something to do with it?
