So many people feel as though the two major parties don't offer enough nuance. Can you really pigeonhole yourself as a Republican or a Democrat?
The fact that we have the Tea Party wing of the Republican party, not to mention the fact that a growing number of voters see themselves as “independent” or “unaffiliated”, is evidence that we need a little more nuance in our politics.
My political beliefs tend toward progressivism with populist leanings. This, of course, puts me in on the liberal end of the political spectrum.
There's a fun political beliefs quiz you can take that will parse it down for you.
My results aren't surprising. They also indicate that I'm not hard-core with either of the two major parties, even though I have quite a bit in common with the Democrat party.
One of the things I like about the I Side With quiz is that you have the option to choose more nuanced answers. You can pick “yes” or “no”, but it's also possible to see more choices, and even add your own position. You also choose how important each issue is to you. The quiz then measures your position and how important it is to you to come up with a comparison.
Go ahead. Take the quiz. What are your political beliefs?
