Where are you on the political spectrum?

I just came across an interesting Political Spectrum Quiz on a website called “GoToQuiz.” Love this kind of stuff. I worked through the quiz once, rather quickly, and got the results below (“right moderate social libertarian,” whatever that is). I’m guessing a second run-through, with more thought given to some of the tougher “iffy” questions, might yield somewhat different results, since with each question you must indicate not only your answer, but how important that issue is to you.

One of the more interesting aspects of this quiz is the opportunity to compare one’s results to others. Comparisons can be filtered by age, gender, race, location, political affiliation, or any combination of these.

Naturally, with more than 200,000 test results in hand, GoToQuiz has generated some maps of the US to summarize the numbers.

My Political Views:

I am a right moderate social libertarian
Right: 3.96, Libertarian: 2.55

My Foreign Policy Views:

Score: -7.87

My Culture War Stance:


Score: -2.86

  1. I’m surprised at my “Rightness.”
    My Political Views I am a far-right social libertarian Right: 9.22, Libertarian: 8.74
    My Foreign Policy Views Score: -9.15 My Culture War Stance Score: -5.92

  2. I took a similar quiz a long, long time ago, and came down almost precisely on the Libertarian spot. I’ll give this one a try later (PC willing) and let you know how it turns out.

  3. It says I’m a left moderate social libertarian, a non-interventionist, and culturally liberal.
    Economic issues: +7.5 left
    Social issues: +2.94 libertarian
    Foreign policy: +5.39 non-interventionist
    Cultural identification: +6.28 liberal

    Gee, ya think?
