    Conservative, with libertarian leanings.
    For fun, I took that little test you linked to, and it came out as I expected.

    I know some will disagree, but honestly, I think the vast majority of people who consider themselves independent/moderate actually do fit into one of the two parties...they just aren't aware of it.
    I think most of them simply lack the political awareness (most likely through lack of interest) to figure out which side they lean toward. Or maybe they think not adhering 100% to the beliefs of a particular side means that they have no side.
    I know I have some issues I lean to the left on, cannabis legalization and abortion for example, but that doesn't mean most of my beliefs don't line up with the right.

    In this political climate, I generally do not see value in classifying people this way. Rather, I think it just leads to more divisiveness.

    Since you have not answered my question about your reason for setting up the pole, all I have to go on is what the OP stated. As it stands, I believe I have answered fully and effectively, I will leave my answer as it stands.

    Regards

    Thanks, missed that. Interesting way to show where one leans, I like that it puts you on a muli-axis graph so that you are not necessarily grouped into a category, though you could do that if you wanted, but rather are somewhere along a continuum. Of course simplifying to one overall score is not very helpful other than wanting to divide people into these political groupings, which doesn't appeal to me as a general rule. And, I already knew where I leaned, so that doesn't tell me anything new.

    What was your reason for wanting to know how people classified themselves?
    Where did you lean?

    On the top, click on the political philosophy option.

    I define it this way: a voter who votes for candidates based on how they stand on various issues rather than on the basis of a political ideology or partisanship
    Well take the quiz and see.

    That's a party affiliation. Take this, and click on 'political philosophy.'
