A test to see which presidential candidate you have most in common with

Check out this presidential test by glassbooth.

The test is pretty good. You get 20 points to assign to various issues, from trade and economic policy, to abortion, to drug war-related policy, and so on. By assigning the 20 points, you weight the importance of the issue to you.

Next, you'll be asked to check off whether you support or oppose various policy proposals.

At the end, you get your outcome. Post your outcomes in the comment section.

My biggest complaints about government are that they don't let the free market dictate business and they don't give people freedom to participate in their own solutions for health care, social security and education. Health care needs to be delivered better by becoming more patient focused with more delivery options.

Heh, I feel kind of dirty. My numbers look bizarre compared to what others have posted.

Don't remember anyone else. Something is wrong, having Obama at 55%. Unless that is his flop opinions as opposed to his flip opinions. I'm embarrassed that his number is that high. I have to try again.
