I thought the Candidate Calculator was interesting.

Not surprisingly, I have

  • 87.72% match with Mike Huckabee
  • 81.58% match with Mitt Romney
  • 64.91% match with John McCain
  • 60.53% match with Ron Paul
  • 29.82% match with Barack Obama
  • 23.68% match with Mike Gravel
  • 21.05% match with Hillary Clinton

  2. I trust your choices were not dominated by social issues when we’re beholden to foreign governments to sustain our “tax cuts during wartime” lifestyle.

  3. I would have thought as a Republican with a strong emphasis on fiscal rather than just social issues, your candidate list would have been different.

  4. Interesting mix for me:

    Mike Gravel 86.25%
    Ron Paul 68.75%
    Barack Obama 61.25%
    John McCain 57.50%

    The rest are below 50%.

  6. Mitt Romney. Not surprising.

  7. I will bet that those who matched with Republicans did so on social rather than economic issues (I slant heavily toward fiscal conservatism).

    IMHO, choosing a candidate to impose your version of morals on others is personally offensive.
