Rather than grave-dig something up from 2010 I decided that we could all use a fresh start here. Personally, I would have preferred if they had included the Constitution Party's candidate, Virgil Goode, and Socialist Party USA candidate Stewart Alexander to diversify the field a bit more (not to mention a few questions pertinent to such candidates). Still, I figured nobody else had posted this yet and maybe some folks would be interested in giving it a go.

For me the results were:

96% - Jill Stein
69% - Barack Obama
49% - Gary Johnson
46% - Buddy Roemer
36% - Ron Paul
23% - Mitt Romney
23% - Rick Santorum
21% - Newt Gingrich

I didn't find this quiz too terribly accurate. The questions weren't nuanced enough on most issues for me to express my views.

Roemer is an interesting result though. I've never gotten him on a political quiz before.

Buddy Roemer 67%
Rick Santorum 67%
Mitt Romney 67%
Newt Gingrich 65%
Ron Paul 60%
Barack Obama 57%
Gary Johnson 55%
Jill Stein 52%

Education and Infrastructure spending seemed to push Newt closer to me ideologically.


Gingrich: 94%
Santorum: 92%
Romney: 92%
Paul: 84%
Roemer: 79%
Johnson: 71%
Stein: 37%
Obama: 33%


Gingrich and me agreed 100% of the time for roughly 2/3rds of the test.

Still: Santorum 2012.

Off the top of my head I believe there is a political "courage" test submitted to candidates for public office asking them to detail what their positions are on a large number of issues - many of which are controversial - and at times quite specific. The pitch is it gives voters an opportunity to see where a person stands on the issues. For one reason or another most candidates choose not to fill it out, so they get branded as lacking courage. It just happens that out of the bunch, Stein is the only one who set aside time to fill it out this time around.

Incidentally, to some extent I am inclined to agree with TJ about the questions.

I accidentally closed the tab, but Gary Johnson was my best match, followed by New Gingrich.
