    Not surprising for me.

    I side 84% with Barack Obama.
    78% with Jill Stein
    68% with Gary Johnson
    21% with Mitt Romney

    90% Democrat
    84% Green
    30% Libertarian
    13% Republican

    I agree with 54% of Montana voters (surprising, very, very red state)
    56% of American voters.

    Stein 77%
    Anderson 66%
    Romney 33% [How did that happen? Too much.]

    Arizona voters 53%
    American voters 55%

    Democrat 87%
    Green 78%
    Republican 31% [I'm actually kind of shocked I got that much.]
    Libertarian 31%



    I also found that only a few times I could actually just say "yes" or "no." These issues are more complicated than that.

    I came up with Gary Johnson 83%, Mitt Romney 73% and Obama 67%. Jill Stein 53% and Rocky Anderson 30% (whoever they are).

    71% republican, 70% democrat, 41% libertarian, 24% green.

    59% Maryland voters.
    59% American voters.

    Almost right down the middle... which doesn't surprise me. I lean a bit more to the right, but have issues where I'm more to the left as well. At this point, I've been considering myself more independent other than anything. I hate only having two parties and have always swayed somewhere in the middle.

    Jill Stein (96%)
    Barack Obama (88%)
    Rocky Anderson (82%)
    Mitt Romney (9%)

    Democrat (99%)
    Green (96%)
    Libertarian (39%)
    Republican (8%)

    I found some of the issues too simplistic for a yes or no answer as well, but I'm not surprised at the overall results for me.

    So I find it fascinating that a LOT of people who take this quiz side with Johnson or Stein - imo if they were allowed into the debates and had more equal monetary resources, I think they'd be VERY real contenders despite the sample size. Really makes you pause...

    Usually libertarian comes up higher because of my views on decriminalizing drugs, but it's pretty accurate I would say.

    Star, I was thinking the same thing. My mom tends to side with Obama about everything, yet when I had her take this quiz she was at 92% Stein.

    These people need more coverage. I knew there were other candidates besides Rep. and Dem., but until this quiz I didn't even know their names. :eek:

    Probably because in the quiz it scores him as supporting Obamacare, just not all aspects of it.

    I got Johnson and Stein as the top two as well.

    Gary Johnson- 89%

    Jill Stein- 71%
    Mitt Romney- 68%

    Democrat- 77%
    Libertarian- 72%
    Green- 69%
    Republican- 58%

    I am surprised that Obama came in that high since I disagree with all his economic policies for the most part. I think part of the problem is that you can't rank each section overall. For me economic policies are the most important at this time. So even though I agree with Obama on 'science issues' it's not as big of a deal to me.

    Anyways, I am fairly moderate and tend to think of myself as a libertarian. Unfortunately in my state you can only vote republican or democrat.

    Answering straight yes or no on all questions ended dropping Obama down to 66%, Romney to 73%, Stein to 75%, and Johnson to 88%.

    You can rate each question, though, and then at the end it'll give you an overall rating for each section.

    Gary Johnson (83%)
    Mitt Romney (79%)
    Virgil Goode (70%)
    Barack Obama (54%) - I'm surprised its even that much.

    I side with Mitt Romney on all of the issues that are important to me (immigration, health care, foreign policy).

    I don't know the other candidates but its nice to see that my choice is fairly accurate based on this quiz.

    This. Economic issues are the most important to me, so although I do agree with the democratic view on science and social issues (gay marriage, for instance), it's not enough for them to get my vote.

    Some of those social issues, I am for too, like gay marriage...it's fine by me. But the most important to me is the economics and giving the government less power...less involvement in things that should be left up to the states or other smaller, private sectors. Without sound economics, our country will fall. Loss of liberty will continue if we don't get the government out of so much that they're into. So, Obama has demonstrated huge increases in spending and is too much in favor of regulating too many things on the federal level. So, absolutely not for Obama.

    If you worry about all the other social issues, like health care, abortion, and whatnot, it's like going into a building that's engulfed in flames to take a burning cigarette off a couch. We must get our economy healthier and be free of the federal government's over-the-top regulation because if we don't, none of the other things will be dealt with either. The feds are involved in so much that is completely unconstitutional. They are only suppose to be involved in a very few specific situations....they're blown up way out of control. And Obama is for perpetuating that in many, many ways. We're suppose to be able to make choices and decide things on a smaller level and we're giving it all away to big government.
