This test is exceedingly faulty (I came up 82% toward McCain, who is as moderate as the day is long.). I support the Political Compass, which has done a graph of the candiates based on their positions. It’s much more accurate and trustworthy. You can take the test at the website and compare your score to theirs.

It picked McCain for me, with Fred a close second.
It doesn’t seem very well developed.

It put every candidate in the “disagree” column for Iraq and immigration. The abortion question was too black and white. My opinion on abortion is identical to Fred Thompson’s, and yet it put Fred’s abortion position in the “disagree” column. At least it put *uckabee at the very bottom of all the Republicans.

Thompson 70 Dis=Immigration, energy
Hunter 65
McCain 63
Huckabee 50

Seems pretty fair assessment to me. Anything that shows me adamantly opposed to the side of the street upon which Obama or Clinton walk is probably rightly ordered. And this showed me giving them each a 7 out of 100. That would be agreeing on the death penalty. I think they’re pandering on that one, though, so it’s really zero. And that would be exactly correct.

Hard to understand, as I disagree with McCain on immigration, and marked it as very important.

That was a horrible quiz, they didn’t match the candidates well to their own real positions.

It's because you've got your jack-boots strung too tight.

Hunter 53 - Yes
Thompson 50 - Yes
Romney 50 - Yuck! Never will I vote for that chameleon.
Huckabee 44
McCain 41
Paul 32
Giuliani 30 - Is it any surprise he is at the bottom?

I think it would have been interesting if that site would have included some other third party choices.

1.McCain = 74
2.Thompson = 60

WTF over?

I think this poll is skewed in some way to bump McCain. There is no way in hell that he agrees with my red meat conservative positions, the strongest of which is my position on illegal immigration.

I want the fence built, no gov’t assistance to illegals, prosecution of employers who hire them, no automatic birth rights, deportations, etc. McCain sponsored the Amnesty Bill, for Pete’s sake! No possible way is he my man.

At least Fred was my number two....sheesh
