ISideWith.com is Match.com for Hooking Up with the Right Presidential Candidate

By James Wallace Harris, Friday, July 3, 2015

Go to ISideWith.com and take the quiz. Over 16 million people have used this site so far.

For the next year and a half we’re going to be bombarded with presidential campaigning. It’s all very confusing and boring. My friend Bill at That’s Interesting… sent me this computerized quiz that does all the work for us. It’s like Match.com for hooking up with the best candidate for your political personality. Here are my top results:

Be sure and expand all the subject areas to answer all the questions to get the most accurate results. Then when you get the results keep scrolling past the candidate rankings to see other demographic information about your political leanings.

In some ways the results matched what I already knew. Intuition told me I liked Sanders most and Cruz least, and the quiz confirmed it. I match with Ted Cruz only 1%. I am surprise I agree so much with Chris Christie, because my gut told me I liked Jeb Bush best of the Republicans. But evidently Christie and I agree a lot on environmental issues. Who knew?

One graphic I really liked:

Political graph

I aim to stay in the middle of things – to be a Centrist, but evidently I’m not. I’m more authoritarian than libertarian and I knew that, but I didn’t know I’d be equal with Ted Cruz. But I’m for legislated equality and he’s for legislated morality.

Taking this quiz concisely shows what issues we’re dealing with in this campaign. I think the quiz should be expanded as we get closer to voting, adding other issues.

  1. I score about the same as you. I wish there were some way
    Bernie Sanders could win. I might even campaign a little bit.

  2. My top numbers are almost exactly the same, Jim, but I only agree with Chris Christie 34% of the time. At that, I agree with him more than I do any other Republican.

    For some reason, though, Ted Cruz agrees with me far more than he agrees with you – three times as much, in fact. We agree a whopping 3% of the time. 🙂

    PS. Thanks for the plug!
