Skip to comments.How do you compare to the British Electorate(In Depth Quiz)
Posted on 04/28/2005 9:23:12 PM PDT by JerseyHighlander
This is the only internet survey of political views based on real opinion poll data. We can tell you not only where your views lie, but how they compare to the views of the rest of the British population.
Take the test >>>
This is not a "how to vote" site, but we will show you which party's supporters have views most like your own.
(You can read some more information about this survey on my(Chris Lightfoot's) web log.)
Heh. Not a shocker, I'm significantly more conservative then the average Brit;
89.9% are significantly to your left
9.6% have views about the same as yours
0.5% are significantly to your right
You know what is funny though? I bet you those people taking this survey who are the inverse of me politically are mostly answering "Centre" as their self-proclaimed position.
I was a bit higher, but more to the left.
This table shows an overview of how the rest of the population compares to you:
|More rehabilitationist, internationalist||About the same||More punitive, isolationist|
|More free-market, pro-war||2.3%||0.7%||0.1%|
|About the same||17.0%||3.5%||0.5%|
|More socialist, anti-war||61.1%||13.5%||1.5%|
Here we compare your answers to those given by readers of a number of well-known newspapers.
to your left
|About the same||Significantly
to your right
|The Mirror / Daily Record||86.3%||13.3%||0.4%|
|The Daily Mail / The Scottish Daily Mail||76.1%||22.3%||1.5%|
|The Daily Star / The Daily Star of Scotland||63.5%||36.5%||0.0%|
|The Daily Telegraph||50.7%||33.3%||16.0%|
Hey, we're kindred spirits LOL.
* 92.7% are significantly to your left * 7.0% have views about the same as yours * 0.3% are significantly to your right
Your position on this axis is 4.2 You are likely to be fairly punitive and isolationist.
Your position on this axis is 3.6 You are likely to be very free-market and pro-war.
Thanks for a great find. Someone should get this webdesigner to set up something like this for the US. I'd love to see the LAtimes readers vs the WAtimes readers.
"The government is mostly interested in helping itself, not ordinary people." My answer: (strongly agree)
This is the question the brits will need to understand to fix their country.
However, on a lighter note, this test enabled me to discovered a potential problem:
100.0% are significantly to your left
0.0% have views about the same as yours
0.0% are significantly to your right
England is lost.
I scored a 2.8 in Crime and Punishment and Internationalism, which the poll claims means that I am "slightly punitive and isolationist" (funny, I thought that I was a save-the-earth Neo-Con).
Scored a 4.6 in Economics, etc., which means that I am "Very free-market and pro-war" (at least they got that one right).
If the table of how the "rest of the population" compares to me is at all representative of the opinions of the British, then their country is lost (75% are "more socialist"? WTH?).
Page two said that I was "slightly" Right of Center and then the next page told me in graph after graph how much of an "extreme right winger" I am, which will come as a surprise to the guys I was just arguing with on another thread who thought I was a Godless homo-leftie or something...Lol!
RE: "England is lost."
My thoughts exactly. Whadda mean 98% of the "overall" British population is significantly to the left of me on Iraq, etc. What is wrong with these people?!
yay! I win!
Compared to the whole population...
99.8% are significantly to your left
0.2% have views about the same as yours
0.0% are significantly to your right
It's looking like the UKIP for me, even though I'm completely to the right of all of them too.
The newspaper rankings - particularly surprising, since The Daily Mail is normally thought of as having the the most right-wing readership of the major dailies. Also the Sun and Express readership appear from this to be relatively further left than one would expect. Closest to you (but not very close) appears to be The Daily Star - a paper which I must confess I've never looked at in my life!
I wonder if there will be a little cloud of FReepers in the upper right this time tomorrow.
According to their stats, if I lived in England I would be to the right of almost everyone.
Maybe I'd try to gather up some friends and colleagues, charter a few vessels, and try to sail to some other shore where we can enjoy freedom from... oh... nevermind.
