    America is filled with such diverse people that have a multitude of political standings.. This means that most people have leanings that may contradict their preferred political party. However, today's climate seems to force people to choose a political party and accept a platform that goes against what they may believe. So in researching fun ways to educate and introduce political ideologies, as well as, help people clarify their standings I found a quick survey provided by the Pew Research Center. In my opinion, this survey is not as extensive as I would like, but it does help strike up an interesting conversation. Please follow the steps below and don't forget to tell us your results!

    1. Survey Feel free to skip questions if necessary. Also, if you would like to share alternative surveys for everyone please do.
    2. Tell us your results
    3. Do you believe that this best describes you? Why not?
    4. Opinions about the survey? Feel free to talk extensively about the descriptions provided for your "Political Typology"

    As a disclaimer: "Pew Research Center is a nonpartisan fact tank that informs the public about the issues, attitudes and trends shaping the world. It conducts public opinion polling, demographic research, media content analysis and other empirical social science research. Pew Research Center does not take policy positions."

    Understanding Pew Research Center's Political Typology


    Solid Liberal
    Opportunity Democrat
    Disaffected Democrat
    Devout and Diverse
    New Era Enterprisers
    Market Skeptic Republican
    Country First Conservative
    Core Conservative
    Bystander


    Also, I realize that this may alienate people that aren't from the U.S., so feel free to participate if you'd like!

    I got "Disaffected Democrat"

    Not too sure what this is supposed to mean, but I'll go with that I guess.

    I'm definitely left-leaning, but I take parts of my political ideology from several sources (Socialism, Libertarianism) that would put me outside the realm of your typical Democrat. I vote that way regardless, because the other side has no moral compass or understanding of how government is supposed to work any more.

    I found this survey to be pretty limited with only two responses per question, but none the less I got Solid Liberal.

    Yes, I agree that this quiz isn't the best.. That's why I mentioned how it isn't extensive enough. But it does provide some interesting descriptions for each Political Typology.

    >Racial discrimination is the main reason why many black people can't get ahead these days


    >Blacks who can't get ahead in this country are mostly responsible for their own condition

    I need a skip option as i believe it's a bit of column A and a bit of Column B.

    Also "Blacks"? Who wrote this thing?

    I got Market Skeptic Republicans, but on the far liberal end of the bell curve.

    Same here, I also got Solid Liberal

    I do kind of think there should have been four options, though. It's very obvious which option you were "supposed" to pick if you were targeting a certain outcome

    I included self-discrimination which made that answer easier.

    It gives you the option to skip questions.. As long as you answer a minimum of 7

    Yeah I think even most right-wing people would want to be a little more compassionate than they were given the option for. It's Republican leadership that's the biggest problem, not their voters, though I still facepalm about how blind the voters are to the fact that they're screwing themselves over.

    Surveys like this are also part of the problem. If you look at the overall curve it slants heavily to the left, most likely due to those slanted questions. Those kind of surveys are made out on a regular basis, but all have a slant. Surveys such as voter projection polls had a very significant effect on the media vastly underestimating Trump's support.

    Well, most surveys at least have a third option which is something more centrist. I'd say most even have a fourth "no opinion/undecided" option.

    As for Trump support, we won't know how much of that was only anti-Clinton sentiment until 2020.
