Presidential Candidates?

An interesting little survey to see which Candidate matches up best with your thoughts on some of the bigger issues.

That's cool. I know now who to vote for! :) Either Edwards or Obama...

Ryan said...

Wow... Mine is my Araknsas dude! Go Huckabee!!!

Stacy said...

Me, too Ryan! I don't know very much about him (except that I liked him pretty well on Fox News the other night...)

Since the survey pointed to him, I guess I need to look him up! :)

The AR thing actually had me a little concerned! LOL

Ryan said...

Yeah, we don't have a good track record with presidents here! :)

Who sponsors this survey? I have to wonder if they're rooting for Huckabee because, no offense, but Huckabee came up as my top choice three different times (once there was a three way tie, I changed some of my answers and whether it was a dealbreaker to see how things changed) and I cannot believe that my views really line up with very conservative Huckabee The only republican I can fathom possibly voting for right now is Rudy - and I'm not sure he'll get my vote either. . .

Off the soapbox. Politics make me crazy - right now I'm just ready for SOMEONE ELSE to be in charge. . .

Okay, I went back and redid mine, taking my time and voting based more on my absolute true feelings, not the feelings I felt that I should have...and guess what. Huckabee and Romney. How different is THAT result?

Stacy said...

I guess it's possible EXCEPT for the fact that this tool was forwarded to me by one of my uber-liberal friends. Also, beside each of the candidates, it has a ynynyn kind of thing to show each answer they would give for each question (yes no yes no, etc.) You can actually compare question by question what each candidate would say in comparison to you.

I'll look at it again to see if there seems to be anything suspicious behind it. I certainly agree that it's always smart to check these out and I admit that I didn't do much homework on it.

Anyone NOT get Huckabee as a top answer??

Hope said...

I wasn't surprised by my results, Obama. Right before your email I had Jake take it and he got Obama too, also not a big surprise. Since the results were what I suspected I didn't question the source.

Stacy said...

Thanks, Hope!

Lisa, in looking at it it a little more in depth, I think it's kosher. There's a link to show the research they used to determine the results....

Maybe you're a Huckabee guy after all?!

FYI Jen, I had Romney as my 2nd choice, too...

:) I think what I've learned from this survey is that an online survey is probably not the best way to choose your presidential candidate! :) On to the movie quiz!!! :)
