I think you should add conservative and liberal. I am much more comfortable calling myself a conservative then a republican. Just because I agree more with one than the other. And no, they are not the same.

I am going to post my stuff later. I am going to take it when I have more time to think about it...

I went ahead and changed the poll to include ideologies as well. Now it's possible to choose a political party and overall beliefs. Unfortunately, changing the poll erases all the previous results, but it's not a big deal.

It had the option to see how you side with dropped out candidates as well, and I sided 88% with Bernie Sanders, who was my preferred candidate.

My views have changed a lot in the past couple years, so the results don't really surprise me.

Also yes, I'm Canadian, but I took a pretty big interest in this election, along with a lot of other Canadians that I know.

Hello, Joy! It's nice to see you around again!

My views have also changed quite a bit over the last few years, moving me to the same quadrant as you, but a little closer to the center.

Moderate conservative. Not surprising, but I'd have liked it better if it was more like the ISideWith quiz, where you have to give a reason for what you believe; there are questions I wasn't sure if I should answer on a personal level or on a political level. Just because I believe something personally doesn't mean I think it should become national policy.
it's not about 'deserve'. it's about what you believe. and i believe in love

Usually when I take this quiz, I get Social Liberalism or Libertarian Socialism.

Yeah, this is a really important distinction. I felt like there were questions that played to both of these, but with some it’s difficult to tell which way you should answer.

Another thing that throws me off is the questions with loaded terms. There’s so much baggage that goes along with “maintaining family values,” and I don’t know if it’s more in the spirit of the question to go with my gut reaction, or try to separate the term from the baggage, if that’s even possible. I just went with neutral for that question.
