Another Candidate Caluclator

I got Tom Tancredo, Rep, Col. Never heard of him, but his site makes him sound like he's entirely running on anti-immigration, which was only a medium on my list.

I can confirm that the calculator works. No surprise here.

Kucinich 85%
Gravel 80%
Richardson 68%
Clinton 65%

Highest rated Rep is Ron Paul at 48%

Wow. I am a 91.23% match with a guy named Duncan Hunter from California.

Then the next guy down was Gravel (14.02%). :-?

You sure you weren't looking at the most-matched list? I think that list tracks who everyone has been matched with.

I was about an 88% match with Gravel, which is no surprise. If I had the chance, he'd get my vote.

Businessman John Cox (R) - Is this even a real person? Sounds like a porn name!!!
83.33% match



Your Other Top Matches
Kansas Senator Sam Brownback (R) - 69.44%
Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson (R) - 65.28%
Illinois Senator Barack Obama (D) - 63.89%




I have yet to complete a single one of these calcluators and have it kick out a candidate I think I agree with. Of course, I can't recall a candidate I agree with right now, so maybe that's the problem.

Oh, that could be. It was the list on the far right of the screen. I thought that was my list before I saw the 90+% in the middle of the screen.
