    In my government class at school, we found this website that has a series of questions that you answer. You rate then from strongly disagree to strongly agree, then at the end it will tell you how much (percentage-wise) you match up with the views of Bush and Kerry. It is a really great website, like easy to use and stuff (I was only sad that it doesn't include minority candidates as well, because that would have been really neat).

    Yikes! I almost forgot to post the website! It's President Match Then you just click the Q & A.

    Kerry 51%
    Bush 46%

    I will vote for Bush.
    Not that it matters, my state
    will vote 60% for Bush and our
    seven electoral votes will go to
    Bush NO MATTER HOW I VOTE.

    I did not vote for Bush in 2000.
    I'm not in favor of a dynasty
    and his father was president.
    (and are we in Iraq cause of the
    sins of the father?)
    I did not vote for Gore either.
    My state voted 60% for Bush and
    our eight electoral votes went
    to Bush. And the Supreme court
    voted Bush in ;) MY VOTE DIDN'T
    COUNT THEN EITHER.

    But I'm still going to vote and
    i'm still going to vote my conviciton.
    And my conviction this year is
    G.W.Bush.

    ah, er, was that "Four more years"?

    Well, I'm not voting for Bush!

    Probably Kerry. Too bad about Dean and that other guy no one knew who he was, Kuni-something.

    I couldn't get through the first one linked to, it had a few U.S. only issues in there.

    On second one I didn't get any of them over 45%...Surprised? ;)

    3rd Poll came out about as I expected but the other ones were way off. Multiple choice questions are typically a poor indicator of underlying philosophy.

    Nonetheless, here are my 3rd poll values:

    Paroutka 2,700
    Badnarik 1,650
    Bush 900
    Kerry -50
