The Candidate Match Game

I took the US Today Candidate Match Game and came up with these results. Not great results considering that I only resonated with five of eleven issues of the candidate that they declared most resonating with my views. I suspect the 66.7% was the result of the way that I weighted the importance of the eleven issues. Of course my number three is moot now since she dropped out of the race. That said, I admit that the other two candidates did not surprise me as they are my top picks from the crowd. Let me know if you play the game and if you are surprised by the results.


  1. An interesting exercise. Thanks for telling me about it.

  2. Huntsman, Romney, and Paul in that order.

    As much as I like Ron Paul, I think much of his agenda does not take into consideration how much America and the world has changed in the last 50 years. We should not forget the past, but neither should we try to live in it.

  3. Obama, followed by Huntsman and Paul (tie).

    Watching the debates, Huntsman and Paul definitely resonate more with me, so would say the survey results match my perception.

    I think Obama-Huntsman would be an interesting race about substantial issues... we'll see.

  4. Would love to see a Huntsman-Obama face off. Time will tell.

  5. Huntsman, Obama, Paul. Interesting tool! Thanks.
