well this explains a lot

I'm not surprised by the order of candidates (though I've never heard of the second guy), but the numerical disparity of Romney (and the GOP) versus everyone else is genuinely surprising, even to me. Looking at that, it's hard to believe I ever voted for a Republican.

The quiz is here, and I encourage you to check it out. Be sure to check out the options under "choose another stance"...they are much more nuanced.

Interesting quiz. I came supporting Gary Johnson at 92%, Romney at 78% and Obama at 31%.

That's not surprising, because I do tend to be libertarian more than conservative. What I don't know is how much things were weighted or how they are weighted, because that would make a difference in determining whether this really is accurate or not.

I came in with:
90% Ron Paul
87% Mittens
81% Gary Johnson
13% Barack Obama

Libertarian and Conservative are engaged in a battle and it's not clear who will win. Modern liberalism is a non-starter for me, though it held considerable attraction when I was in college. Living in France soured me on it and got the libertarian ball rolling.

Mark, you can weigh each question yourself (there is a slider on the left of each question where you indicate how important the issue is to you.)

i got...
95 johnson
89 paul
76 romney
18 obama

its probably about right.

I saw the slider, Brian, but didn't use it much. Many things are "somewhat" important to me, so keeping the intensity level in the middle seemed like the right play.

I weighted maybe a quarter of the things.

I liked the "other options." I used it quite a bit.
