The Dutch – or to be more precise: Andre Krouwel of the Free University, Amsterstam – have tried their hand at making an electoral compass for the US presidential elections.
According to the compass, I have a substantive agreement with Barack Obama of 78% against 76% for John Edwards, 71% for Hillary Clinton and 68% for Bill Richardson. I’m not really surprised.
My favourite Republican candidate would be Ron Paul (49% agreement – wery much due to Iraq, anti-terrorism and privacy policies), Mike Huckabee and Fred Thompson tie as my least favourite candidates with only 28% policy agreement.
