My Top Match is Ron Paul (83%), not totally surprising, while it says my wife's is Dennis Kucinich (82%) - though she says he's a "crazy communist fruitcake" and she actually prefers Hillary Clinton.

My top match is Tancredo, but I am more tempted to support Ron Paul really.

Ben Rogers

My top match is John Cox - who I have never heard of!! I thought it'd be Brownback.


Any questionnaire which has Mike Gravel as the most popular candidate is fatally flawed. Brownback isn't any more attractive a candidate just because the Left believes he should be popular among conservatives.

Not entirely surprising to me...

Arizona Senator John McCain (R) - 67.39%
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) - 65.22%
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson (D) - 57.61%
Former Tennessee Senator Thompson (R) - 56.52%
Colorado Representative Tom Tancredo (R) - 54.35%
Former Alaska Senator Mike Gravel (D) - 51.09%
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney (R) - 51.09%
Kansas Senator Sam Brownback (R) - 47.83%
Delaware Senator Joseph Biden (D) - 46.74%
California Representative Duncan Hunter (R) - 43.48%
Texas Representative Ron Paul (R) - 41.30%
Businessman John Cox (R) - 40.22%
New York Senator Hillary Clinton (D) - 39.13%
Former North Carolina Senator John Edwards (D) - 39.13%
Ohio Representative Dennis Kucinich (D) - 39.13%
Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson (R) - 39.13%
Connecticut Senator Christopher Dodd (D) - 38.04%
Illinois Senator Barack Obama (D) - 38.04%


Hey I got Mitt Romney alright! That's who I am supporting in the primaries.


My top ones were all Republicans and the bottom ones were Democrats.

I think this was because I am socially Conservative.
City Mayor Rudy Giuliani(71.43%) match was my top match. Which doesn't suprise me. However I thought he was meant to be liberal in social issues.

California Representative Duncan Hunter (R) - 71.43%
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee (R) - 68.57%
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney (R) - 68.57%
Businessman John Cox (R) - 48.57%
Connecticut Senator Christopher Dodd (D) - 42.86%
Ohio Representative Dennis Kucinich (D) - 37.14%
Former Alaska Senator Mike Gravel (D) - 34.29%

I think you need a party that is socially Conservative but supports issues like universal health care and no child left behind.


I've commented on this blog before that I strongly support Duncan Hunter.

I've just taken the same test and come out a +84.44% match for him.

I'm not surprised at all by my result - he should be the first choice of all conservatives in my opinion. Sen Brownback is a good candidate too, but I feel unfortunately both of them would struggle for a national majority vote in 2008.


Gravel - 31.26%
Kucinich - 20.44%
Romney - 5.75%

LOL - 100%

I wouldn't put too much faith in this test. I said I was in favor of abortion rights and "unsure" about a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, and it concluded that Tom Tancredo was my most compatible candidate!

I much prefer Giuliani or John McCain. This is why computer dating never works...


Hmmm... I got Romney, which is kinda strange, because I can't stand the guy. Though, I suppose that's because it's got nothing to do with his policies. What is this obsession some Americans have for creeps with perfect hair (real or fake)? Giuliani was a very close second and he is more my thing - vote for the balding bloke (though I suppose I should be thinking of Thompson too if that's my criteria!).

I'm really starting to think I shouldn't be so juvenile and vote more for policies over personality. It's a bit girly really. I was just as bad in the last British election - couldn't vote for Howard because he's such a slimeball, even though I agreed with most things he said. Sigh.

Andrew Lilico

I got John Cox (over 90%!), whom I'd never heard of, then Mitt Romney then Ron Paul.

One thing about this that American readers can help me out with. I hadn't heard of "waterboarding" before this, but now I've looked it up. Unbelievable! Is this *honestly* a point of debate in the US? Are there *truly* people who will stand up in public and defend the sanctioned use of waterboarding?!?

Jonathan Powell

Are there *truly* people who will stand up in public and defend the sanctioned use of waterboarding?!?

If it leads to information which prevents atrocities like 9/11, why not? As long as they're sure the guy being interrogated is a terrorist, I don't see a problem with it. People like bin Laden deserve far, far worse.


What a surprise(only joking) my first choice was John McCain at 70.31% I through was surprised on how low Ron Paul was at 53.91% but then it was probably due to our differences on foreign policy. So to end with go John go.
