My results:http://www.isidewith.com/results/155689428  I also side most with Jill Stein on most issues.  I'm guessing either we're very similar politically, or this survey is fixed to get people to vote for Stein!

EDIT: http://www.isidewith.com/results/156605253  After answering the hidden questions, I got pretty similar results to the first time...

Well, this doesn't help me any, come voting time...
I only have a 4% difference in similarity between Obama and Romney? And neither is a particularly high percentage? Hrm... Yeah.

I took the test the first time with different results, but then I noticed there were a BUNCH of more questions hidden, so I retook it.

What's interesting to me about this is how the results list my home state. I expect I'm not the only one that experienced this. Do you think it's just giving us a comparison for our own reference, using our IP address?

EDIT: Definitely IP address. Apparently I agree most with people in New York.

I got Jill Stein as well. Somehow Romney and I agree on science issues? Dunno how that worked out.

Well, when I further scrutinized my results compared to Obama and Romney, I think I'm actually more similar to Romney. (If you click on the candidates and such on the results page, it compares each of your answers to theirs.)
The first time I took the test, I got Gary Johnson, then Romney, and Obama was further down the list. But then I noticed there were a LOT more questions kind of hidden in the quiz (you have to expand them), and when I answered those, my results changed.

Heh, on nearly every response, I took a third option.

Guys, post your results URL so people can compare them!

This is what I got. I'm quite surprised that I apparently side with a bit over half of Kentucky voters on things overall.

I apparently side with CrossEyed on 93% of things.

My results are not surprising. Side most with democratic views, less with libertarian and republican views.

I know it's past the election and all that, but:

81% Mitt Romney on Economic, Domestic Policy, Environmental, and Social Issues
77% Gary Johnson on Economic, Domestic Policy, Healthcare, Social, and Immigration Issues
60% Barack Obama on Economic, Foreign Policy, and Immigration Issues
51% Virgil Goode on Environmental Issues

Parties I side with...
69% Republican   62% Libertarian    53% Democrat    28% Green
Formerly quite reasonable.

Statistically insignificant difference between Stein and Johnson (84% vs. 83%), slightly less for Obama (76%), almost nothing at all in common with Romney (11%). I think when I took this before and Virgil Goode was on the list I actually scored a higher percent for him than Romney, which kind of says something about Romney because I think Goode is a dangerous sociopath.

I apparently agree with 15% of the Republican platform somehow, which is about 15% more of it than I expected.

EDIT: I also apparently live in Kansas according to this poll. And somehow agree with them in 60% of things, which considering some of the stories I've heard about Kansas state politics scares me a lot. But no, I definitely remember voting in Indiana and, despite the lines for the polls being like an hour long for some reason, that it was very worth it to be able to cast a vote against "Rapey Dick" Mourdoch. I actually didn't even care about the presidental race (voted for Obama, but probably would've voted for Stein if she were even on the IN ballot), but the Senate race was that important to me that the wait was really worth it.

The quiz has been revised a bit, with general party recommendations instead of candidate recommendations, and questions that are a bit more "up to date" (although some of them still seem a bit dated. I decided to take the test again for whatever reason, and also because my views on certain things are just a bit different than before.

My new results. I now side 96% with CrossEyed's posted test.

2/16/14 EDIT: I took it again after noticing that my place on the political compass shifted farther down and to the left when I retook that test.

I got Huckabee at 73%, followed by Sanders at 72%. Figure that one out.

This test would be easier if I knew what the heck to do with illegal immigrants.
