I don't know if I would put a whole lot of faith in this test, but I have taken it several different times, answering slightly differently on some questions as I rethink the question itself and I tend to come out with essentially the same candidates each time. The test is at http://www.selectsmart.com/president/2008.html and asks you 25 questions with you rating the priority of each question. While I can think of several ways to improve the test itself, it is fun to take and appears to match up relatively well. Of course, then you need to look at why you matched and why you didn't and perhaps make some additional adjustments on your own. But overall, a neat little test to take and some pretty interesting outputs. I'll be first on posting how my picks played out after taking the test itself: Your Results: 1. Theoretical Ideal Candidate (100%) 2. Ron Paul (70%) 3. Kent McManigal (57%) 4. John McCain (50%) 5. Dennis Kucinich (50%) 6. Michael Bloomberg (50%) 7. Alan Augustson (50%) 8. Mike Gravel (48%) 9. Chuck Hagel (48%) 10. Barack Obama (46%) 11. Fred Thompson (46%) 12. Tommy Thompson (46%) 13. Christopher Dodd (45%) 14. Bill Richardson (44%) 15. Newt Gingrich (44%) 16. Joseph Biden (43%) 17. Hillary Clinton (42%) 18. Tom Tancredo (41%) 19. Jim Gilmore (40%) 20. Al Gore (40%) 21. Duncan Hunter (40%) 22. Sam Brownback (40%) 23. Wesley Clark (39%) 24. Mitt Romney (39%) 25. John Edwards (36%) 26. Rudolph Giuliani (31%) 27. Elaine Brown (27%) 28. Mike Huckabee (27%) As you can see, it came out with my currently selected candidate, Ron Paul, as the one closest to my beliefs, so in that aspect it seems to be close. It also rated both Kucinich and Bloomberg relatively high for me, two men I wouldn't consider voting for in a month of Sundays. I think those two rated as high as they did because there is limited rankings to the test itself. A much better version would be if at the end of the test you could rank each issue as to its importance to you, thereby putting greater emphasis on some with decreasing or even no interest at all on others. If the election were held tommorrow, I would vote for Ron Paul. Seeing as how its over a year down the line, things may change.
