Matching US Presidents

David Farrar has a post highlighting a USA Today survey to see which US presidential candidate matches your own core beliefs.

It is a bit wonky and you do need a little bit of understanding about Federal politics and their political system as well as some policy areas such as Obama Care.

When I say it is wonky I really can’t believe that he would have Chris Christie at number 2…or even Bobby Jindal as number 1.

I have created a table of the candidates with Pinko’s ratings beside mine. I’ve listed them alphabetically.   

Candidate Farrar rating Farrar Rank Slater rating Slater rank
Jeb Bush 46% 3 27% 8
Ben Carson 31% 9 53% 1
Lincoln Chafee 31% 12  7% 17
Chris Christie 54% 2 20% 14
Hillary Clinton  23% 15  7% 19
Ted Cruz 23% 16 40% 5
Carly Fiorina 31% 8 47% 4
Jim Gilmore 31% 11 20% 12
Lindsey Graham 38% 6 20% 11
Mike Huckabee 23% 17 33% 7
Bobby Jindal 62% 1 13% 15
John Kasich  38% 7  27% 9
Martin O’Malley  31% 13  13%  16
George Pataki  38% 5  20% 13
Rand Paul 31% 10 33% 6
Marco Rubio  46% 4 27% 10
Bernie Sanders  31% 14 7% 20
Rick Santorum  20% 8 47% 3
Donald Trump  15% 19  53% 2
Jim Webb 18% 15 7% 17

The only one of concern to me is Rick Santorum, I think the man is a tool, but that may be his delivery rather than his policy mix.

I think the survey is probably suspect, but it does go to show how different Pinko and I are on our views.
