USA Presidential Election 2012

Postby kibo » 2012-10-29, 15:51

This topic should have been created a long time ago, but unfortunally we gained a rather filthy habit of discussing everything in the random threads. Since I found this rather interesting test, I thought I'd create a separate topic. We love tests, don't we?

http://www.isidewith.com/

If you do the test, be sure to answer the additional questions too. Also "choose another stance" gives you more elaborate options.

I'd vote for Obama, realistically. I personally agree with Jill Stein more (89%, and the remaining percent is really minor differences), but seeing how close Romney and Obama are in the polls, I'd rather help secure the win of the least evil.

(I took this test few weeks ago, can't find the link)

Yeah, well... politically I'm more of a left-winger. I just like Chirac's face, he is all my childhood, you know. :roll:

I'm two months too young too vote this election... I'd vote Obama though. Lesser of two evils and what-not.

But I'd vote for Obama since we all know candidates neither Republican nor Democratic don't have a sporting chance with most voters committed to one of the two main parties - and I certainly wouldn't want Mr. Romney to get elected, he's against everything I support (abortion, gay marriage, universal healthcare are the 3 main things).

It amuses me how non-Americans are in the American extreme-left while in their countries they can be anywhere from centre-right to moderate-left.

  • 85% Obama
  • 83% Democratic Party
  • 72% Johnson
  • 56% the average American voter
  • 24% Romney
  • 18% Republican Party

Okay, here is something I don't get: why would you vote for Obama when you actually sympathise with another party more? I mean, apparently everyone thinks like that and then it's only about Obama and Romney while actually people like other parties more, isn't that wrong or at least very strange...? Don't you think this system should be changed to give other parties more chances?
