TREKBBS Game ... who should you vote for?

For President of the United States that is. Lot's of these quiz/tests out there, this one ask a couple of dozen questions, shows how your personal beliefs line up with the 2 main candidates, as well as 3 of the third party candidates. It does asks for a zip code, put down a fake if you wish. Later there a request for a e-mail, which you can skip. Those from outside America can play along too.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...-election.html

if you see fit to do so, post your results. These are mine.

Jill Stein ........... 82% Green
Gary Johnson ... 75% Libertarian
Virgil Goode ..... 58% Constitution
Mitt Romney .... 56% Republican
Barack Obama . 31% Democrat

I sent in my absentee ballot on October 19th.

Re: TREKBBS Game ... who should you vote for?

I can't get that to work. Just keeps sending me back to the zip code after the first question.

But I did have another link that gets into a lot of detail: http://www.isidewith.com/
Many questions have "Choose another stance", which gives a lot more detailed options. Just to show the typical output, I'll put my results here.

Candidates you side with....

88% Mitt Romney
Republican
on foreign policy, social, science, domestic policy, and economic issues

71%
Barack Obama
Democrat
on foreign policy, healthcare, and environmental issues

56%
Gary Johnson
Libertarian
on economic and immigration issues

39%
Jill Stein
Green
on environmental issues

27%
Virgil Goode
Constitution
no major issues

13%
Rocky Anderson
Justice
on healthcare issues

52%
Missouri Voters (<-- Wrong state for me. It read the IP of my company, which routes through there.)
on foreign policy, domestic policy, economic, social, environmental, and immigration issues.

55%
American Voters
on foreign policy, domestic policy, science, economic, environmental, and immigration issues.


Parties you side with...
83% Republican
46% Democrat
33% Libertarian
19% Green

Well, that didn't tell me anything I didn't already know.

For BJ's Poll:
Barack Obama Democrat 85%
on foreign policy, social, healthcare, and science issues


Jill Stein Green 83%
on foreign policy, environmental, social, immigration, science, and economic issues


Rocky Anderson 58%
Justice,on social issues



Mitt Romney Republican 33%
on domestic policy issues


Texas Voters 57%
on foreign policy, domestic policy, environmental, social, science, and economic issues.


American Voters 60%
on foreign policy, domestic policy, environmental, social, science, and economic issues.

94% Democrat. Yep, that's about right.

Re: TREKBBS Game ... who should you vote for?

Jill Stein - 61%
Barack Obama - 59%
Gary Johnson - 42%
Mitt Romney - 29%
Virgil Goode - 25%

My takeaway is that my political views don't really match with any of the candidates' so I'm not likely to be very well represented no matter who wins.

I also took the iside quiz that B.J. posted and got these results:




I seem to have higher percentages in the second quiz, but the results are pretty much the same.

I only marginally know who Jill Stein is, but I guess she must be awesome.

Obama looks like an acceptable substitute, tho.

^She is pretty awesome, actually!

I did a different version of this test about a month ago, and got Jill Stein First and Obama second. This time around I got Obama first and Stein second -- a fluke of the test, as my opinions haven't changed since then.

Wow, iguana_tonante, only 2% Republican! And I thought my 24% was low.

Re: TREKBBS Game ... who should you vote for?

And even that 2% makes me squirm uncomfortably. Thankfully, I also was listed as having 0% agreement with Virgil Goode, which made me feel a bit better.

More seriously, the current Republican Party platform (social conservatism, libertarian fiscal policies, laissez-faire economics, neo-con foreign relationships, anti-environmentalism, etc.) is pretty much the polar opposite of what I think and believe, so no big surprise there.

Re: TREKBBS Game ... who should you vote for?

I wonder why I got 22% Mitt.

It must have been wanting to drill for something. Yeah.

Re: TREKBBS Game ... who should you vote for?

In the first one:

Obama 73%
Stein 69%

In the second one:



Huh. I guess I should look up who Jill Stein is.

Re: TREKBBS Game ... who should you vote for?

Not exactly a great suprise

Obama 73%
Johnson 65%
Stein 57%
Goode 37%
Romney 30%

But then again by some countries standards Obama is centre/centre-right on the political spectrum, whilst Romney is more to the right.
