Choice Test: ABC News Match-O-Matic


This is kind of cool Enjoy.

ABC has a test to see who’s campaign statements, McCain’s or Obama’s,you agree with most. They don’t tell you who made the statements, of course, but a statement made by each candidate on the same topic (economy, immigration, judiciary, etc.) will be side by side.You just pick which statement you agree with and, after selecting all 13, you’ll find out which candidate’s philosophy you support.

After playing with the Match-O-Matic let me know how well you did.
It may be kind of interesting see if people really know the person in which they intent to support or not.
