Got Joe Biden with 65%, followed by Jill Stein at 63% and Bernie Sanders at 60%. Nothing especially surprising.

I got Clinton followed by Christie, which is evidence that this quiz isn't very good at all. I've watched almost all of the Republican debates, and Christie has barely managed to say anything I agreed with.

Granted, none of the matches were very strong. 43% was the highest.

Roseanne Barr shares about half of my economic and social interests, while Bernie Sanders shares 70% of my social interests and 35% of my economic interests, according to this quiz.

Rand Paul 35% (I would have scored higher with his dad's answers)
Rick Santorum 33%
Roseanne Barr (huh?) 30%
Ted Cruz 30%
Bernie Sanders 25%
Marco Rubio 23%
Donald Trump 20%
Hillary Clinton 20%
Barack Obama 18% (that high?)
Mike Bloomberg 15%
Joe Biden 13%

Libertarian party is my highest at 45%. Democrats at 13%.

My political philosophy is conservative-leaning libertarian, which seems fair, but apparently I disagree with everybody on both sides enough that every score for everyone is low. The highest score I got on any of the lists that would actually generate is Dick Cheney and Jim DeMint at 38%.
Now I know there's a reason you shouldn't blame others when you do something wrong, and that reason is: you might get caught and have to apologize to a bunch of dumb peasants.

Jill Stein and Elizabeth Warren tied at 78%. Not really surprised. My overall beliefs are a bit left of the Democratic party, and Warren was my ideal candidate before the election cycle started. My political stance is Hard-core Liberal. 78% Green party, 63% Democratic Party.

The main problem with tests like these is that they cover ideology and general beliefs but they can't really get into specific policies on how to enact them, nor which issues are more and less important.

Which is basically why I liked O'Malley more than Clinton and Sanders. Even if ideologically the other two would be closer to me, he had very creative and realistic policies for the kinds of reforms we need. Especially in regards to health care and the environment.

My highest was Hillary with 38%.

I'm just not voting in this election. I have no horse in this race.
