    I ran across this, and found it interesting. Find out what people like you are thinking about the issues facing the country.

    Go ahead, take the quiz (it's quick I promise) icon_smile.gif: http://typology.people-press.org/typology/

    So, where do you fit?

    While I'm a fiscal conservative and are more liberal on social issues.. the result branded me as a "liberal". Probably in Kansas (a red state) I would be.icon_cool.gif

    I fell into the Social Conservatives.

    Yes, a gay social conservative!! [gasp!] It can happen! haha

    Although I don't own a gun, am not female, or live in the South, or basically any other the other typical characteristics.

    Actually, its pretty lonely out here! icon_lol.gif

    Liberal
    Based on your answers to the questionnaire, you most closely resemble survey respondents within the Liberal typology group. This does not mean that you necessarily fit every group characteristic or agree with the group on all issues.

    Liberals represent 17 percent of the American public, and 19 percent of registered voters.

    Basic Description
    This group has nearly doubled in proportion since 1999, Liberals now comprise the largest share of Democrats and is the single largest of the nine Typology groups. [Emphasis mine] They are the most opposed to an assertive foreign policy, the most secular, and take the most liberal views on social issues such as homosexuality, abortion, and censorship. They differ from other Democratic groups in that they are strongly pro-environment and pro-immigration, issues which are more controversial among Conservative and Disadvantaged Democrats.

    Defining Values
    Strongest preference for diplomacy over use of military force. Pro-choice, supportive of gay marriage and strongly favor environmental protection. Low participation in religious activities. Most sympathetic of any group to immigrants as well as labor unions, and most opposed to the anti-terrorism Patriot Act.

    Who They Are
    Most (62%) identify themselves as liberal. Predominantly white (83%), most highly educated group (49% have a college degree or more), and youngest group after Bystanders. Least religious group in typology: 43% report they seldom or never attend religious services; nearly a quarter (22%) are seculars. More than one-third never married (36%). Largest group residing in urban areas (42%) and in the western half the country (34%). Wealthiest Democratic group (41% earn at least $75,000).

    Lifestyle Notes
    Largest group to have been born (or whose parents were born) outside of the U.S. or Canada (20%). Least likely to report having a gun at home (23%) or attending bible study or prayer group meetings (13%).

    2004 Election
    Bush 2%, Kerry 81%

    Party ID
    59% Democrat; 40% Independent/No Preference, 1% Republican (92% Dem/Lean Dem)

    Media Use
    Liberals are second only to Enterprisers in following news about government and public affairs most of the time (60%). Liberals’ use of the internet to get news is the highest among all groups (37%).

    Liberal, but that's no surprise. I live in NY, am Agnostic at best (am tempted to talk to the Athiest groups that set up tables outside Columbus Circle), never married, am a MoveOn.org member -- the list goes on & on...

    I'm an Enterpriser. I like the sound of that; basically means I'm a capitalist. Seems like the questions were either slanted to the far left or far right; several times I would have preferred a position nearer the center.

    I agree with USM on the wanting some less polarizing questions, but it did make me come down somewhere other than in the middle, where I tend to live on many issues.

    Liberal here, too. Surprise.icon_neutral.gif Although definitely socially liberal/fiscally conservative.

    Ack! It says I'm a big ol' bleeding heart liberal. icon_surprised.gif

    I tell ya, it's Dubya's and Bill-O's fault.

    I think listening to Stephanie Miller, Randy Rhodes, and Keith Olbermann have caused my transition from the moderate that I thought I was, to the Liberal that I am. I guess it could be worse...

    Liberal was their result. Actually I see myself as a Democratic Socialist which is one of the major leading political parties in Europe and now controls government where I live in Spain. However, even the Popular Party in Europe, who are considered the conservatives here, are probably left of most Democrats in the USA.

    Interesting. I was considered an Upbeat. The part about viewing Bush favorably is dead wrong but other than that, it was a reasonably good description.

    Being Scandinavian I'm quite strongly liberal

    However, over here, I vote for the Conservatives..icon_confused.gif

    I'm, as Hndsm said he was as well, fiscally conservative and socially liberal, never really understood the point of socialism..

    According to that I'm a liberal but I'd actually call myself a socialist/anarcho-syndicalist/neo-socialist.
