2016 Presidential Election – How do your beliefs align with the potential candidates?

iSideWith.com was started in March 2012 by two friends with two very different views of politics. We are constantly finding and building new ways to boost voter engagement and education using information, data, and breaking technologies.

That’s it! We are not affiliated with any investors, shareholders, political party or interest group.

If you share our passion for this project and would like to support it, share the site with your friends so we can educate more voters about your local and state representatives by Election Day (November 8th, 2016).

Try the quiz, here.

To increase the accuracy of answers, I’d suggest using both the “how important is this to you?” and “Other stances” options.

Below are my results and a sample of the data that you’ll see after completing the quiz.  There’s actually quite a bit of data you’ll get, but I didn’t want to bore you with all the details.

I was a bit surprised that Sanders appeared at the top of my list.  I couldn’t capture the entire list of candidates, but to no surprise, I least aligned with Ted Cruz.  But despite these results, I’m still undecided.  What it doesn’t take into consideration, is how I view a candidate’s ability to pass legislation and work across party lines.

    No wonder we get along so well – I took this a couple of weeks ago and got Bernie, too! 🙂

    My biggest problem is that there is no single candidate that I feel accurately represents my opinions. I have voted in every presidential election for which I was an eligible voter, but I have yet to vote for a candidate that actually excited me. And maybe I'm so pragmatic that no one ever will.

  2. John Mackovic says:

    Flip yours upside down and you get mine. I'm a 96% Rand Paul right-wing libertarian.

  3. RPM says:

    I also got Bernie Sanders (89%), which was quite a surprise. I've not chosen who to support yet and never seriously considered him before. Quite an eye opener.

  4. Jason Truitt says:

    98% Sanders (guess I’ll have to stop ignoring him as a candidate);

    91% Biden (my overall choice for pres)

    96% Green Party (because of a strong environmental stance)

    1% Republican Party (a surprise to this gun owning pro-choice Texan)

  5. Mr. Mike Honcho says:

    Hmmm… 85% Rand Paul. I never would have thought that.

  6. Dude says:

    94% Bernie Sanders…. I did this a couple of months ago and was surprised then. Since that time he's done nothing but resonate with me when I hear what he says. I still fear it would be "throwing away a vote". But the election is so far off. I think we will see how viable of a candidate he is when both the Dems and Repubs start to focus their smear campaigns on him. Right now they are choosing to ignore him.
