I am interested in knowing which candidate you guys support. It'd be nice if you could say which candidate you actually support and which candidate this quiz says you most support (https://www.isidewith.com...). Also state which candidate you "dislike" the most. Also state, if you would be so kind, what your "ideology" is according to the quiz.

I apparently I side "84%" with Sanders yet also "74%" with Trump. How is this even possible? And apparently it also says I'm a centrist.

So are you saying my dream of having Trump as president and Sanders as VP (or vice versa) is a possible dream come true?

"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

If that was the only issue, then vote moderation could be avoided more often, since a vote in which the voter does explain sufficiently how at least one point a debater made swung their vote, would be considered sufficient. -Airmax

The unpracticality of implementing his programs mostly..... He wont be able to get any of his major programs through Congress as divided as it is, and even if he did there is no chance he would actually be able to fund his programs which would mushroom the debt. While the same can be said for any legislation Hillary wants to pass if she got elected, Hillary has a massive edge on Bernie when it comes to foreign policy experience, giving her the tie-breaker....

I freely admit though that if Biden were running I would support him over Hillary. He's easily more authentic/human, and in terms of experience he spent 8 years as VP which arguably matches Hillary's 4 years as Secretary of State.

That's fair, and I agree 100% with all of that - with the exception of personally believing that Hillary's foreign policy experience being a plus for her politically - but it is true that she does have that experience.

I definitely agree on Biden seeming more genuine. The guy always came off to me as just saying what was on his mind, and while that can be a problem politically (and I know it bothered Obama on some occasions) it does make him a more appealing candidate and a much more likable person.

So yeah, your reservations about Sanders are completely understandable.

Did you do all of the questions and consider the more specific answers?

Nah, I just gave the most basic yes or no to pretty much everything... I suppose I could take it again with more detail - though I don't think a lot is gona change... I'm a socially liberal libertarian, so the results are somewhat reflective of my views

Apparently, I side with Sanders 93% of the time. I'm not sure he's the right candidate for president though. Obama was perfect. No one else even comes close.

I'm left-wing and authoritarian. But it's not entirely accurate though. I'm a strong believer in free market capitalism.

I'll probably wind up voting for Hillary because while she's a terrible b*tch, I need to do my part to protect America from Donald Trump.
