Kucinich and Gravel at my field quarterSaturday, November 10, 2007 at 19:47 | Posted in Election, entertainment, Politics, USA, web tests | 6 Comments

I spotted at Chawed Rosin an image of the political compass scores of each of the US presidential hopefuls. Since I happened to take the very same test the other day through my Facebook profile, I inserted my own score (Left/Right: -3.50, Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.82) into the same image. This is how I seem to compare to the candidates:
Looks like Mick Gravel and Dennis Kucinich are the only two of the bunch who manage to place themselves at the same field quarter with me. I was no longer surprised for the outcome since Kucinich also topped the result I got from both Candidate Calculator and Presidential Candidate Selector. As for Gravel, he was close to top in Candidate Calculator but somewhere in the mid region in Presidential Candidate Selector.
As usual I want to point out that this sort of surveys should only be considered as web entertainment. I would never consider casting a vote according to a survey score (even if I had one in this particular election). That said, my interest in these two fellows has been awaken.
