My matches for US President

USA Today has a survey where you can try and match which US presidential candidate is closest to you.

Like all surveys like this, it has flaws with multi-choice answers. For example on the issue of same sex marriage there was no option for supporting same sex marriage, but not regarding it as a constitutional right.

Anyway my closest match was Bobby Jindal on 62%. That’s pretty low for a closest match, which reflects how there are very few candidates who are fiscally conservative and socially liberal. The full list of matches for me is:

  1. Bobby Jindal 62%
  2. Chris Christie 54%
  3. Jeb Bush 46%
  4. Marco Rubio 46%
  5. George Pataki 38%
  6. Lindsay Graham 38%
  7. John Kasich 38%
  8. Carly Fiorina 31%
  9. Ben Carson 31%
  10. Rand Paul 31%
  11. Jim Gilmore 31%
  12. Lincoln Chafee 31%
  13. Martin O’Malley 31%
  14. Bernie Sander 31%
  15. Hilary Clinton 23%
  16. Ted Cruz 23%
  17. Mick Huckabee 23%
  18. Jim Webb 15%
  19. Donald Trump 15%
  20. Rick Santorum 8%

I’m so happy I live in New Zealand!
