Picking a Candidate...

Postby treat24 » Wed Oct 24, 2007 10:38 am

I found this rather interesting, as the candidate that topped my list was not at all what I expected.

It's a short 10 or so question poll and it ranks the candidates according to your answers... telling you essentially which candidate is best for your views I guess.

I had a feeling Hilary would be at the bottom of my list... :-b

That is a pretty cool tool for younger voters to get an idea on the views of the candidates because it takes so little time. Most of the younger voters wouldn't spend much more time or effort than that to research the candidates. Which is kind of sad when you think about it I suppose.

I've done several of these now from links here and on the Dark Side, and I think every time it's kicked out a different candidate for me. The questions are too vague, they are too narrow, and I think in general I have to disagree with the premise of most of these quizzes.
