2012 Election: The Candidate Match Game - USATODAY.com

I wouldn't put too much faith in this as far as scientific accuracy but it was interesting to me. I was actually surprised at the results ... still scratching my head over them! Apparently my indecision on some issues registered even with an online quiz! :-2

Ron Paul - 60.1%

Newt Gingrich - 46.8%

Obama - 46.8%

Romney's last.

But then this is the same publication that wrote the average Federal employee makes $123,000 a year. I make about half that.

Well, there's a surprise

Obama 49%

Huntsman 47%

and Ron paul 38%

And the only points I seem to agree with Paul over are Afghanistan and Defense spending

I liked Huntsman but I guess he was too intellectually elite for the majority of the voters. Because apparently being well educated is a bad thing.

At least for the GOP, it seems.

I even registered as a Republican so that I could vote for him in the coming primary.

Now, what do I do?
