Surprised by the find-you-candidate quiz
This quiz surprised me. It gave me a 50-point agreement score with Rudy Giuliani. Now, I will say I didn't like this quiz. The options were often loaded and not comprehensive. That said, I was shocked to see it rank me far closer to Giuliani than Paul.

Top score:
Rudy Giuliani
Score: 50
Agree
Immigration
Taxes
Health Care
Abortion
Social Security
Line-Item Veto
Marriage
Death Penalty
Disagree
Iraq
Stem-Cell Research
Energy


Gack...I just can't see voting for a republicrat.  Also, the questions were so skewed and wonky that I'm not sure that I trust it's concept of "agree" and "disagree."

Third-place behind McCain:
Ron Paul
Score: 38
Agree
Taxes
Stem-Cell Research
Health Care
Line-Item Veto
Energy
Marriage
Disagree
Iraq
Immigration
Abortion
Social Security
Death Penalty
Top-scoring democrat, right ahead of Edwards:
Dennis Kucinich
Score: 28
Agree
Immigration
Abortion
Line-Item Veto
Marriage
Disagree
Iraq
Taxes
Stem-Cell Research
Health Care
Social Security
Energy
Death Penalty

*nods* the survey was sucktastic. Some questions I disagreed with for reasons other than the obvious (I don't support federal stem-cell research because I think the feds have no business going beyond the eight or nine things enumerated in the Constitution). I gotta wonder if this ain't GOP-run....

I agree that it was a terrible quiz. I really wanted a few "none of the above" options.

Yeah, this poll has been going around, choosing Guliani for everyone (my leftist friends, libertarians, neocons..). It's bullshit.

Did you try the original MPR version that it links to at the start? That one gives you the option of leaving a question unanswered if you don't like any of the options. It also has more questions with more detailed choices-- the one on mortgages presents ten different potential solutions.

That one gave me a tie between Edwards and Richardson.

I also got Giuliani. Hey if it came down to voting between Hilary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani, I think I'd vote for Giuliani in a New York minute.
