My order was Kucinich, Sharpton, Gephardt. The fact that I would be more likely to vote for W. than at least two of these guys (and I never have voted for a Republican for President in over 25 years of voting) gives you some idea as to how accurate the picker is.

I was Kerry, Gephardt, Kucinichalmccm

Bush was #9 with a 13% match.
Bush, Lieberman, EdwardsLive Steam

Well Lieberman was @ 76% and Edwards @64%. Must have been his opposition to torte reform that hurt Edwards :O)

So how did we compromise ourselves by participating in that little poll? Someone is obviously getting something for nothing but will sell the information for profit. Does the government and others now know who I will vote for and what I believe are the most important issues?

I took the test the first time (giving logical and sane answers!) and it spit out the Gep, Kerry and Kucinich with Dean in fourth and George W last.

My son took the test and without prodding from me the result was similar (same people, different order), but with Sharpton in fourth, and with Bush dead last again.

So I jump back on and with the kid we answered every guestion with the most right wing wacked out answer we could muster...going completely against good judgement and common sense ;-)... So who's #1? Right, your good buddy GW. with a near 100% match. I wanna know what this guy must be on! no one could be that far out

And he's going to win a second term?...geez I gotta pull my head out of my @ss...

Your buddy, RW ;-)
Hey mine was a 100% match!Live Steam

That just proves you can't trick the test. Who were 2 & 3 from your 'whacko' attempt? Hey RW, don't worry, there's always 2008 to look forward to :O)
Surprise: Lieberman,Kerry, BushPaulCL

100% - 96% - 93%...then the next guy was WAY down the list. My surprise though I tend to look at myself as fiscally conservative, socially moderate. I guess it fits. I hope Lieberman wins.
Would you vote for him in the GE? nmLive Steam

I would be tempted to vote for a Kerry/Edwards ticket if I thought it had a real chance of winning. That would certainly derail Hillarity's hopes for a bid at the White House. But I doubt it will see the light of day if the powers that be see it the same way.
It appears to be broken. Check your results.Free2Pedal

It put Clark at the top of my list with a 100% result, however, some of my answers were exactly to opposite to his position. Hmmm?
Whoa! I'm a closet Democrap!landru

I'm shocked:

1. Kucinich

2. Gephardt

3. Kerry

with Shrub last.

I think even before this test, we identified you as a progressive spirit who belongs with the Dumocrats. What state are you in? I'll send you the forms to switch parties!

george got an 11% on mineMR_GRUMPY

I was shocked the Gephart scored 100% on my run through. Kucinich and Sharpton (who I think are nut-cases) got second and third with 99%. Kerry got a 93%. Clark and Dean almost tied at 92%. The rest went downhill fast. Edwards, Lieberman, and finally Bush with 11%.
