I just tried out the President Match tool which tries to figure pick which US presidential candidate shares your views based on a poll and my results were

    1. Kucinich 100%
    2. Kerry       96%
    3. Sharpton  90%
    4. Edwards   90%
    5. Dean        89%
    6. Clark        87%
    7. Liberman   83%
    8. Bush         37%

I'm unsurprised by how far away George Bush is from representing my perspectives but I am surprised that Kerry comes so close. I'm definitely going to do some research into his position on certain issues. I had an ex-grilfriend call me a long time ago gushing about Kucinich who told me I'd love his campaign if I ever looked into it, I guess she was right.

This match tool is just about useless, as it gives equal weighting to all issues. Kucinich was my top match, but looking at his stances, I can't see how; about all we line up on are foreign trade and the death penalty. Considering that all but 3 of his positions are strongly oppose or strongly favor, I'd call him more of a knee-jerk reactionary than someone I'd want running a country.

I got very similiar results, Kucinich was #1 for me as well. I only got 10% with Bush though, I win. :)

Maybe this was really just a ruse to promote Kucinich. He was top on my list when I took the test (Sharpton was #2?!?!) though he didn't break the top 6 on any other test like this I've taken.

My call is that this is definitely a pro-Kucinic site. He's probably first on everyone's list. :) He was a 100% match for me, too.

I think Hamsterdance would probably give me better results.

I guess I'm just a heartless bastard: Bush came up as #1 for me.

Thinking about this some more, maybe it's not necessarily pro-Kucinich, but pro-strongly held positions. Just glancing at the candidates, all the others took more nuanced stances, somewhat favor or oppose, or no opinion. So maybe I'm wrong, maybe this thing does strong weighting. The question is, if you're strongly anti-abortion, and strongly anti-death penalty, who do you vote for? How about if you're strongly anti-Iraq war, but strongly pro tax cut? Neither of these positions is self-contradictory, and AFAICT, none of the candidates would be a good fit. I don't know what to make of it.

Sharpton was number one for my. My God...

But I think that it goes to show that there's more to a candidate then just positions.

Also, from what I've heard, everyone gets a 100% match with someone. Basically, it gives the highest match 100 regardless of how close you are, and then gives the other numbers in relation to that.

Dare - I had almost the same exact same scoring as you :)
