Political Quiz…

January 26, 2008


Here’s a little 14 item quiz that asks questions related to the issues that are a part of the political debate this election season.  After answering the questions, the candidates are stacked up according to which ones are the most compatible with your positions. 

You can skip to the summary of the candidates views on each item here.  Although, I think it is cheating to look here first and then take the quiz. 

Here are the questions on the quiz:

Question: What is your opinion on the war in Iraq?

Question: What is your position on immigration in the United States?

Question: Do you believe the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts should be made permanent?

Question: Should federal funding of embryonic stem cell research be expanded?

Question: Do you favor or oppose the concept of universal health care in America?

Question: Do you favor or oppose legalized abortion in the United States?

Question: Do you favor the concept of privatization of Social Security to any degree?

Question: Do you favor or oppose giving the president a “line-item” veto; that is, the ability to remove parts of a spending bill without needing to veto the entire bill?

Question: Do you support federal assistance for the production of ethanol and/or biofuel as an alternative to oil?

Question: Do you favor or oppose a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman?

Question: Do you favor or oppose the use of the death penalty for certain crimes?

Question: Agree or Disagree: When the government places restrictions on obtaining and owning a gun, they infringe upon our rights to bear arms.

Question: Do environmental regulations improve or limit the standard of living?

Question: Should teachers receive pay based on the performance of their students?

    Interesting. I did the quiz a few months ago, and Kucinich and Paulk topped the list with 28 points each: Notes from underground: US Presidential candidates unravelled.

    Tried it again now, and they still topped the list, this time with 37 points each!

    At least I know who the good guts are, but thye aren’t winning.
