Where Do You Stand? (2016 Election)

So there's a website called I Stand With that lets you do a short quiz to determine who you should be voting for in the upcoming primaries and the 2016 election. Any takers?

I also, I think @GasBandit might be right about me... as I SOMEHOW got this and he's not even an option!

I got:

Rand Paul 90%
Marco Rubio 89%
Scott Walker 85%
Ted Cruz 84%
Ben Carson 71%
Carly Fiorina 62%
Hillary Clinton 61%

The fact that those last two are so close together amuses me

Oh, and Bernie Sanders 52%


Also there are no Libertarian candidates on that quiz.[DOUBLEPOST=1436229647,1436229533][/DOUBLEPOST]Also it says I am a centrist.
 
I love on my Wisconsin map that it's all blue/green but when you get to Madison it's all red.
 
Also there are no Libertarian candidates on that quiz.[DOUBLEPOST=1436229647,1436229533][/DOUBLEPOST]Also it says I am a centrist.
Probably because the Libertarians have failed to field an actual, electable candidate. I have no idea why Bernie is there... he's basically just as unelectable.[DOUBLEPOST=1436230176][/DOUBLEPOST]
Also it says I am a centrist.
According to my results, I'm only slightly left of center. Probably because my of harsher immigration views.

I also apparently side with Bernie Sanders on the majority of issues, though with Hillary Clinton on social issues, and... TED CRUZ on foreign issues?!

I feel so dirty...
 
Bernie Sanders 96%
Hillary Clinton 87%
martin O'Malley 81%
Chris Christie 56%
Rand Paul 27%
Carly Fiorina 24%
and we go under 20%.

*edit*
It's funny how I'm strongly Left-Wing on American sites. Most of my friends would describe me as fairly conservative, based on my stance on Belgian politics. This comes, of course, from the fact that I do think we handle some things (far from everything! Hah!) better, and in some ways the world would be a better place if the USA was a bit more like some European countries. Of course, a lot of what's considered "left" in the US is "take a more European approach", which is in Europe a conservative stance.
 
95% Bernie Sanders? That's surprising. Followed by Clinton at 79%.

And apparently I side with Mike Huckabee on foreign policy issues.

You know, Sanders does seem to be rather electable when so many people seem to support what he stands for.

He might be able to get into office, but he doesn't have the political clout or skill at the game to get things done. I deeply admire the conviction and honest of Bernie... but I'd still vote Hillary because I think she could actually get something DONE. She's already shown herself to be damn near bulletproof, politically.
 
I got Bernie Sanders too, surprisingly.


This is Bernie Sanders campaign plant, isn't it.
 
Eh. We're a fairly leftist group on this forum. The right wing people we have tend to be only so on specific issues and for specific reasons. Even our deeply religious people aren't of the idiotic variety, but of the intelligent type. How many backwards hicks are there on here, all told? And so on. And plenty of foreigners. All in all, we're not exactly a representative population to predict nationwide politics.

It's weird that that quote from GB showed as being me.
 
I support Bernie Sanders, but we all know why he won't get elected in this country and it's not because of his politics.

He's not Christian.

In a decade or two, I don't think that's going to matter anymore. A lot of Americans like to pretend they are religious and that their beliefs are indelible, but most of their kids have only the barest notion of what faith actually is... really, virtually everyone I know that is my age is agnostic at best and admits it... and I'm in the middle of "God's Country".

Really, we just need a candidate that is otherwise electable to be publicly agnostic or atheist and it'll happen. Ironically, I thought we'd get a Jewish president first.

A decade or two isn't this election though and I kind of doubt he'll be running in his 90s. Considering the shitstorm around "Obama is Muslim!", I don't think this country is going to elect anyone who isn't toweling the line with Jesus.

Not as long as Fox Noise and the rest of the far right howler monkeys are still making money off of it.
 
It was a completely unfair assessment.

There was no doomweasel option.

Also, I got Bernie Sanders at 91%.
 
What is it with Bernie Sanders?

--Patrick
Basically, he embodies all the reforms and ideals that the underclass and left of center Americans desire: raising taxes on the wealthy, going after Wall Street for causing the economic depression, focusing on education and infrastructure over global hegemony, etc... these are all things that people WANT but our leadership have ignored for political reasons. But suddenly we have a candidate actually exposing all of these views and it's got a lot of people excited. But despite all of the push he has, he's exactly as electable as Ron Paul was a few years back.

He's basically a left of center Ron Paul, except he's getting MAJOR push for some reason because people really don't like Hillary personally.
 
Bernie was my highest at 79%, but for the most part I find him too far left for my liking. I hate all political candidates in general though.

DEI FOR PRESIDENT!
 
Rick Santorum 89%
Ted Cruz 88%
Marco Rubio 86%
Jeb Bush 73%
Scott Walker 72%

Googling up some of these candidates and... well, all I can say that I probably wouldn't vote for any of them. On some issues I can agree with them, but mostly their stances and statements are too radical for my tastes. But I guess being wishy-washy doesn't win elections for you, in any country.

Apparently I agree with Bernie Sanders on Economic Issues, with a 39% overall score.

edit: By "radical", I meant "extreme". /edit

I wouldn't expect any less from Mr. Burns.
 
No surprise I side with Bernie (94%). What pisses me off is I got 58% agreement with the donald. Granted, I didn't go into the "more stances" button on most of the questions.

Also not all that surprised I stand with the Greens more than the Democrats (98-97. 65% Libertarian and 24% GOP). I'd considered switching to the Mountain Party (WV Greens-affiliated party) after the disaster of the last midterms.

And the rest are ALL below 17% :O

That Rand Paul there is funny. He has some surprising (to me!) stances on foreign and domestic policy that I agree with

EDIT: Ah, look at party affinity results
Democrat 98%
Green 97%
Socialist 94%
Libertarian 64% <- Rand Paul is pretty libertarian isn't he? Even if he's in the GOP?
Constitution party 31%
Republicans 7%

That makes sense
