Super Tuesday

One of the hardest parts of trying to be a responsible citizen is knowing how to vote in elections (at least for me anyway). I don't think there's a single candidate out there that feels the same way I do on EVERY issue. And, does agreement on ten smaller issues outweigh a disagreement on a major issue? There's a lot to take into consideration.

Enter this website. It matches you with candidates based upon how closely you align with their opinions on the issues, as well as how relevant those issues are to you. Please understand that I'm NOT suggesting you cast your vote based solely on the outcome of this tool, but its results are interesting, nonetheless.

On the results page, it lists the top candidates based on the people who had used the tool so far. Interesting that there are two people in the top five whose names I had never heard.

  • Republican - 53.43%
  • Democrat - 46.57%

Also, they compiled the most popular responses from all voters to create a composite candidate, a candidate whose views match most with the average responses of users.
Anyway, I don't pretend to be any sort of political analyst . . . I just thought I'd share the site I had found this afternoon.
