presidential election

Ahhh, politics. One of the more frustrating things in life. However, it’s a reality, and this year is election year. I do think Bill Maher put it well when he said; “If I hear the word change one more time from the presidential candidates the only thing I’m going to change is the channel.” I just watched that episode of his show this evening and it motivated me to poke around on the Internet.

I took some tests/quizzes/surveys on issues that then told me which candidate I aligned with. I wouldn’t vote on this solely, but I did find it interesting. I tallied and averaged my results below;

Obama 1 1 4 1 = 1.75
Clinton 4 2 1 1 = 2.00
Kucinich 3 4 1 1 = 2.25
Edwards 2 3 3 5 = 3.25
Giuliani 9 5 5 1 = 5.00
Romney 8 6 9 5 = 7.00
McCain 7 7 7 9 = 7.50
Huckabee 6 9 7 10 = 8.00
Paul 5 10 10 7 = 8.00
Thompson 10 8 6 8 = 8.50

I was a bit shocked with how far to the left I leaned. I actually disagree with quite a few democrat views, but I guess align more consistently across the board. Too bad there isn’t a couple more major parties to pick from.. of course, that would be work for voters. That might prove to be complicated =).

Here are a list of the surveys;

This doesn’t necessarily mean I’ll vote for Obama, but it was just interesting to share.
