I got the answer I expected, 85% Johnson match. I answered all of the expanded questions, usually by also telling it to give me all of the options and sometimes even adding options of my own.

But I got that I matched with Hillary on crime issues, which means one of two things to me. Either the analysis is wackier than already suggested or Hillary lied on wherever they are getting her criminal issues answers from. I tend towards the latter, but I also recognize that it could be that both are true.

92% Trump
87% Johnson

One of my friends DID tell me the other day that I sound just like trump...even though I haven't actually kept up much with the campaigns. I said something like "Vote me in, I'll fire Congress, fire the judges, shut down the useless regulatory agencies, and deport the illegals."

Questions are very much restricted to yes and no where there are alternate valid answers, or explanation.

For example, Abortion: I agree with next-morning pill or abortion in the first 90 days for medical reasons or rape. Still I am pro life.
Teen pregnancy or unwanted pregnancy due to illicit sex does not justify killing an unborn child. Call me old school, conservative, or whatever. However, Once the baby is completely formed in the womb, it is murder to kill that unborn human being.
So is this position a Pro-life or Pro-Choice?

I think the way the poll allows you to weigh the importance of the issue , helps make it fairer and maybe more scientific. Abortion is also a tough one for me. Personally, I find the idea of most abortions repulsive, but also the idea of the government interfering with doctor patient relationship equally terrible. Simple questions don't always have simple answers.

Actually, if you clicked the "other stances" choice for each question, it pops open a list of 5 or 6 other more nuanced possibilities........including for the abortion question.

Johnson is the Libertarian Party's candidate for POTUS.

I am so disappointed and disgusted with the GOP! If they (GOP) get another democrat elected, I suspect I'll get quite familiar with the Libertarian movement.
