Not Sure Who You Want to Vote For? Maybe This Quiz Can Help!

I took this quiz just to see who it said I should vote for based on the issues. As you can see, I'm not really thrilled with either candidate--it came out pretty close:

Karen's Issue Profile: 48% Obama, 52% McCain
(Gerard's Issue Profile: 36% Obama, 64% McCain)

The following statements are about Karen:
Truth be told, I'm not really satisfied with either of the candidates. (true)
I could vote for either of them. I am the typical coveted swing voter.
You may want to narrow yourself down to a particular set of issues in order to pick your president. (which I have)
Or start looking at third party candidates. One of them might suit you better. (Like who???)

Well, I've decided but I'm not telling you. My vote is private. Since I've started blogging, not much else is!

Finally, I found a voter guide which lists each candidates views on all the issues along with their voting record in the past. These were made available to everyone at our church. I took a handful to share with my co-workers. It was unbiased and just factual information which I found to be very helpful.

Also, in today's Cleveland PLAIN DEALER had a light article about personal facts about each of the Presidential candidates that I found interesting. It was like reading those memes like the one I did listing 8 random facts. The fact that interested me the most was their pets: McCain has 4 dogs, 2 turtles, 1 cat, 13 fish, 3 parakeets and did have a ferret that died in the spring. Obama has zero pets.

Other facts shared included astrological sign, high school nickname, favorite TV shows, most important proposal, first job, on his ipod, favorite movies, favorite superhero, favorite books, unusual office decoration, favorite TV/movie President, favorite junk food (doughnuts-McCain; French fries-Obama), etc.

How fun. I know who I'm voting for, but I'll check this out nonetheless. Have a great day. :)

I got almost the same numbers as you did. I guess a combination of both sides would work best for me. I'll just be glad when the whole thing is OVER but the quiz was lots of fun.

hi zemeks! thanks for the additional input, you're right petting a dog or cat is also a great way to de-stress.

I got the exact same score that you did.

I supported Ron Paul big time, so this election is rather depressing.

nice post

I think what hurt McCain most was his age and secondly, his choice for running mate. I think the fact that the economy took a nose dive right at election time is what really caused people to want something different--thinking anything would be better than this. I hope they're right!

Barack definitely has charisma (which frankly scares me) and was the better speaker. He has an interesting past. All I can do is continue trusting God and hope for the best. Hopefully the changes will be beneficial, but I have my doubts.
