Take The I Side With Quiz

This Isidewith quiz has been bouncing around lately as it did during the last presidential election. It tells you which presidential candidates policies you most agree with. It says I agree most with Marc Feldman (isn't he a libertarian candidate?). 91% with Feldman,86% with Gary Johnson and 85% with Trump. Who'da thunk?

HOJ was Feldman @ 86%, Peterson @ 78%, McAfee @ 74%, Trump @ 72%, then two more libertarians, then Gary Johnson. Bernie was next!

Cruz was last!

"13 % hitlery and 8 % sanders"

Damn. Shame on me. I got over 50% for each of them. Embarrassing. Wish I could have gotten closer to what you got.

The poll is flawed from the get-go. They ask pro-choice or pro-life, but clicking 'other stances' reveals choices that cover how the vast majority of people feel. Most Americans are not pro anything for 100% of all situations. A significant number of people will click one of the two options instead of clicking through to see the option that truly matches their viewpoint. All of the poll questions contain this flaw.

Secondarily, several sections have 13 to 14 questions that are entirely hidden behind a link to 'see more questions', and you can complete the survey having missed about 30 questions. What's the point?

I don't answer detailed polls that don't identify who is behind the poll... let alone a poll that claims not to be part of any group, but manages to provide that poll translated in 29 languages. Twenty-nine languages!

My conspiracy-minded view is that a smart organization could easily data mine the American populace, associating detailed information about political viewpoints with the IP addresses of those viewpoints, and later tie those IP addresses with the names and contact information of specific people. Couple that with JavaScript connecting to Facebook (who we all know are champions of our privacy! *cough*), and, well, no thank you.

Agreed on the defect.

All poll takers to be on an equal basis for understanding all options need to read the options in the other box. It skews the % to a different candidate.

Also, there are additional questions. If less than everyone does not answer all the same questions, then the % is skewed too.

I like how they have it laid out. It provides a generalize with the most basic questions, for those in a hurry. It also provides the boxes for in depth comparisons for more defined match up. Best of all, they offer the boxfor the other right answer you seek & you get to fill it in. Then you get to compare your answers with candidate, for even more in depth insights, especially interesting with the "other right" answers they also provided.
I got Petersen, McAfee, Feldman, Johnson, Trump, but I answered all questions provided, plus wrote in my own answers in the other box.
