I agree its skewed somewhat. I too got a McCain. And fortunately, neither Obamalamadingdong nor she-whose-name-must-not-be-spoken got above 15.

lol...Kind of like that “Are you a Libertarian?” quiz on their web site. No matter how you answer the questions, you are a Liberal or a Libertarian.

It also gave me McCain. ANd I know some of the answers I gave on gun rights, amnesty, abortion and embryonic stem cell were hard right of what he believes. Something smells.

How about? Do you think the next president should appoint judges who are likely to overturn the gag order provisions in the McCain/Feingold laws?

How important is this to you?

“The WQAD candidate survey is based on the original SELECT A CANDIDATE survey developed by Minnesota Public Radio and posted at: http://minnesota.publicradio.org/projects/ongoing/select_a_candidate/. Used by permission.”

I’m shocked.

People who take polls remind me of people who keep doing the same wrong thing over and over, hoping for different results.


At least the pollster has an objective. (which is obvious in their question selection ... BTW)

Definitely skewed, gave me McCain.

Or, maybe I just need to "calm down".

Yeah, it’s one of those things that is intended to create the news rather than to report the news.

Polls can be mere propaganda stunts.

I also got McCain, and it wasn’t hard to find the reason why. The “quiz” misrepresents his positions on a bunch of things, including making the tax cuts permanent, the environment, gun control, etc.

That gave me Ron Paul, followed closely by Willard, with the Huckster not far behind. At least it was right about McCain this time. (And right about Hillary being the bottom of the bottom of the barrel.)

Like Mona Lisa Vito (Marisa Tomei) said in "My Cousin Vinny":

"That's a BS question, your honor! It can't be answered! It's a trick question!"

I came with McCain as the most corservative; my wife took the quiz right after me, selected more liberal answers and the name (drumroll) McCain showed up again.

I believe they forgot to add that the quiz was prepared by and paid for by the John McCain presidential committee

I’ve seen that KQED quiz and it’s extremely skewed. VAJoe seems to be a real attempt to match your views with Candidate positions.

See post 19. I’m a Paultard! Who knew. Actually, Ron Paul on paper sounded great to me way back when. It was only when I actually saw the guy that I knew something was wrong. And unhinged moonbats crawling out of the woodwork with Ron Paul signs confirmed that.

I’m still waiting after about 4 minutes. Maybe I confused it.

I got McInsane as well and I can’t stand the man even though I’m a Vietnam vet. He is as Liberal as both Mrs. Clinton and Osama Obama. Where are our Conservative choices? I thing that kudos are due to the NFT and NEA for doing such a marvelous job of dumbing down our electorate.
