Who Should I Vote For In The Republican 2012 Primaries?

Let's face it, our pool of presidential hopefuls isn't very thrilling, and it's hard to determine which of all the candidates has the greatest potential to beat Barack Obama in the 2012 elections.

But fear not, the UK Telegraph has a great little test to help you with that decision.  With a series of questions from Defense/Foreign Policy/Homeland Security to Healthcare,  it matches you with the candidate who is most closely aligned with your political beliefs.  Obviously, not all the candidates are listed, only the main contenders.

Those listed in this particular quiz (in alphabetical order) are:

Michelle Bachmann
Herman Cain
Newt Gingrich
Ron Paul
Rick Perry
Mitt Romney

To take the test, click here. At the end of the quiz, where it asks you to enter your email address, just click on "skip this", and you will get your results.

I can't vouch for its accuracy, neither does VoteMatch, the company that created the quiz, but it certainly is a fun way to give you an inkling of who you should consider.


Here's another great quiz, with different questions, from  It has a more comprehensive list, including Obama, and also has listed politicians who might not be running.

Hello! I was surprised that I was smack in the middle of Liberal. I posit this quiz doesn't have enough questions to be entirely accurate, however: most certainly it shows how I should vote-- on the left.
