    Don't know whom to vote for? Try this.

    Watching hundreds of hours of political coverage didn't help me decide. The news programs just spit out the latest poll information. This site may help you. Try both Q&A and Compare.

    You're welcome. By the way, Bush is included. Try it for fun even if you are a Republican.

    that list of questions sure helped me solidify my vote in the upcoming primary. (And in much less time than wading through all of the political speeches would have taken me!)

    Great as reminders of the issues. I liked the poll.

    All the democratic candidates got more than 80 percent, with Edwards the most.

    Bush less than 20 per cent.

    Oh well, you know how those Liberal newyorkers are.

    I think the biggest reason I got 55 % for Bush is the abortion issue. Otherwise it would have been a much smaller percentage.

    Ok people, I put the definitely at the end of my message so you could learn to spell it. Guess it didn't work, eh?

    Joe, you think you are a liberal? For me it was: Kucinich 100%, Sharpton, Kerry, Dean, Clark, Edwards all 88% or higher. Bush - 13% :D Actully, since I am torn between Kerry and Edwards, this is somewhat helpful.

    Pairsfan, thank you very much for posting this. One thing I wish those quizzes did is to look at the candidate's actual record as well as what they are saying. Unfortunately, you have to really dig for that kind of information. Also, one reason I like Kerry a lot is that he has one of the best pro-Israel records among the Democrats.

    Thanks for this link!

    I was 100% Kerry, 98% Kucinich, 91% Dean, I think 88% Edwards, and 6% Bush (which in my opinion is 6% too much!).

    Oh please oh please, anyone other than Bush win in November...

    I was 100% Kucinich, although I personally prefer Edwards. I strongly dislike Kerry, but it looks as though he may br our next President. And I was SOOO close to voting in this election!!!!!!!

    Before this election cycle, I have really like Kerry. I always thought he would make a good president. The one thing that really disappointed me was his pro-Iraq vote. Based on his record, I do not beleive he voted that way because he really beleived it was right; he did it to help his political career. I know his explanation for that vote, and I just plain don't buy it. Then again, Edwards voted for that resolution as well; Clark (whom I don't like) said he would have supported it as well. The only cadidates who were really against it were Dean, Kusinich, and Sharpton. :\

    I'm like GrGranny in that I got 100% match with Sharpton. I would never vote for him. My 2nd highest match was Kerry and the lowest was Bush.

    I would warn though that this site seems to match only questions where you did not respond 'no opinion/don't care'. So, if you left some of the responses as indifferent, then the candidate isn't neccessarily a perfect match if you form an opinion.

    Ptchka - Kucinich was a close second for me and Sharpton was third. In reality I actually lkike all them at least on paper.
