It's not exactly something I found on my own, but here goes, give it a try:

Not only does it show which parties you agree with the most, but the politicians that correspond to your state as well. I'm not sure what will happen if users outside the US take the quiz, because a couple questions come from your state, and quite a few have jurisdiction only in the US.

Anyway, simply copy the image, upload it to an image sharing site, then paste it here!

I'm kinda scared at what my results were. I always knew I was a more-progressive individual, but I didn't realize it was so saturated.

I agree with Republicans on....Increasing the space exploration budget, eliminating Gerrymandering, and implementing a more elastic approach to gun ownership xD

Disclaimer: If the picture works, yippee. If not, I blame AG because this is the only site I've ever had problems with posting images and there's no edit button for me to correct something if there's a mistake.

The results were pretty much as expected, and I probably could have given percentages of similar values if asked how much I agree with what party. I don't know if others would consider my position extreme (I think I'm fairly moderate to be honest) but whatever.

Anyways, ignore the "Agrees with Republicans on education issues." The only reason it's saying that is because I answered, "No, teach each student to their own potential instead of uniform testing," because I think our education system is royally screwed up and needs to be completely redone. Students don't learn, they memorize. They don't understand, they regurgitate. Then we take this regurgitation as "proof" students are learning, when really they just forgot it right after they passed their test.

Dunno. I wonder if I can link you to my results.

Here goes.

If not...it seems a lot of my ambivalent answers were counted as agreeing with more softline positions also held by the GOP.

It does that, if you say "Yes", and the party says, "yes, buuuut..." then it will treat it as a similar, thus counted, answer.

The emphasis is placed more on how much you feel on the subject. It's counted less towards the percentage if you don't care as much on the subject compared to other issues. A "most definitely" will bump up the percentage more than a "least" score.

A little more Republican than you guys, and very much anti-Libertarian. Probably because of the marijuana, death penalty, limiting of funds to schools that do not meet performance standards, keeping the military budget at current levels issues.

Democrats - 85% On Science, environmental, social, economic, and education issues.

Green Party - 78% On Science, environmental, foreign policy, domestic policy, economic, and education issues.
