Who Should I Vote For In The 2016 Presidential Primaries- Quiz

Once again we're faced with choosing who our next leader will be. Like 2012, we don't have a terribly great choice in either party. You've got the two front runners from a very small group of presidential wannabees in the Democratic party- Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. And a slew of Republican contenders topped by the petulant outsider Donald Trump followed by Ben Carson, who was giving Trump a run for his money until he recently slipped way down in the polls. Now it's anybody's guess who might garner enough popularity to compete with Trump for the trip to the White House.

It's always a challenge to figure out who you are most aligned with politically, so I enjoy the quizzes that pop up during election years.  The latest from I Side With has an in depth quiz that covers all the categories from Economy to Foreign Policy to Education and everything in between.

Those listed in this particular quiz, in no particular order. Other than three Democrats listed at the bottom, along with Indepedent Jim Webb, all the rest are Republicans.

Donald Trump
Ben Carson
Carly Fiorino
Marco Rubio
Mike Huckabee
Ted Cruz
Jeb Bush
Rick Santorum
Rand Paul
Chris Christie
Rick Kasich
Hillary Clinton
Bernie Sanders
Martin O'Malley
Jim Webb

I really like Ben Carson, but he has no chance of winning. And no offense to all the Trump lovers, but I was not in any way a fan- I thought he was a major joke (though I've been warming to him ever so slightly),  so was very surprised to see him at the top of my list on this quiz.

Am still not sure who I will vote for during the primaries.
