Political Compass Test

Here take this test.

Have to warn you though, it's heavily liberally biased. It's a perfect example of how Obama can get a 73% approval rating.

All you have to do is frame the question a certain way, oh like..."Do you agree with Dick Cheney's assessment that Obama is going to wreck the country?"
Since you know most people hate Dick Cheney, then most people will automaticall disagree with Cheney and Obama's "Approval Rating" will then go up. That's what CBS/NYTimes poll did last week.

What Pew did was different. They just sampled 100 more Democrats than Republicans, and then who knows how many of the "independents" were in fact independents. Obviously they weren't any Tea Party demonstrators, that is sure.

They go by the philosophy that perception is reality. If you don't agree with Obama, they want you to think your the extreme minority and therefor your opinion should be marginalized. It's a tactic they have and will use time and time again.

I rather like this poll.
Sixty percent (60%) of Americans say the federal government has too much power and too much money, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
Or how about this one?
70% of U.S. voters believe that big business and big government generally work together against the interests of investors and consumers, according to Rasmussen Reports surveying. Just 14% disagree with the assessment, and 17% are not sure.
So who do you think Obama is working for?

Oh yeah here is my score for the political compass test.

Economic Left/Right: 5.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.92
