    Hmmm... because of my views on the internet, I'm supposed to have more in common with McKinney or Nader? My answers supported theirs by 76%, where as Obama's was 74%. Interesting.

    Even with that knowledge, I know that Nader and/or McKinney have no chance on winning this election. Being that I'm practically on par with Obama makes him (again) a more reliable choice. At least that way I can get the majority of things I care about taken care of. We can always work on the internet issues.

    Based on Glassbooth.org:

    64% Obama
    61% McKinney
    60% Nader
    45% McCain

    Based on electoralcompass.com:

    I am closest to Obama. (Social Liberalism/Economic Left)
    I am furthest from Thompson. (Social Conservatism/Economic Right)

    My trust levels:

    Obama
    Competence: C+
    Reliability: D

    Competence: C-
    Reliability: F
    McCain

    My results were 68% for Obama, 49% for McCain, 71% McKinney, 53% Bob Barr, and 78% Nader (my pick in 2000).

    I know I disagree with Obama on several issues, including FISA, however, I'm still voting for him.


    Still didn't find a match with either candidate.
