2012 Election: The Candidate Match Game - USATODAY.com

Let me know your results and your thoughts after you've completed the quiz.



I am the woolrus
Interesting quiz! Seems pretty useful for any undecided voters. My results were:

1st Ron Paul: 54.6% (4 out of 11)
2nd Barack Obama: 43.3% (2 out of 11)
3rd John Huntsman: 38.8% (2 out of 11)

While i was more in favour of the Obama camp as regards Healthcare (which was set to 3/4 on the sliders), the main winner for Ron Paul was Afghanistan and Defense Spending, both of which were set to 4/4 on the importance sliders.

I guess this is sort of bias as someone doing the quiz from outside the country though. While i do have strong views on a government supported healthcare system and support for social welfare, when it comes to the American case i guess it's not surprising that their foreign policy is the most important issue for me personally.

Even if i believe that huge cuts in defense spending and a pull out of Afghanistan are necessary to provide effective health care and social welfare, if i lived in America, i might not be inclined to vote for a Ron Paul government that probably wouldn't guarantee any of these things...
