Democrat's support for LGBT, gay marriage, abortion etc and their history of being anti-Christian made voting for a democrat especially Hitlary a non-starter. They were going to vote republican, and I think many were initially divided between Cruz and Trump the frontrunners, and got behind the nominee.

Wasn't even sure if the first question "Are you black, Hispanic or Asian?" applied since I am mixed by US standards. Just reran it answering yes to my part ethnicities in Q 1 and I am +42D or +72D. Will still vote for Trump.
I was +19 Republican and I would set myself on fire before I would vote for Trump. Shows that you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover: this straight Protestant white male (all things that should make me Republican apparently) couldn't be further from their prediction.

Quiz: Let Us Predict Whether
You’re a Democrat or a Republican


I scored +48 democratic, which is strange since people here call me a far-right wing extremist.
It makes sense, that one question can determine the affiliation of about 40% of the population with 65-95% accuracy.

Yeah, the party of fifty genders and anti-vaxxers really shouldn’t throw stones.

Yeah, when I read the NYT or the rare times I listen to NPR, I feel like I am being trolled and then I realize I am supposed to blindly conform to some sort of identity predefined in so many ways.

+75 Republican. LOL

It's not about race the way some of y'all are suggesting or your political leanings. I knew it was going to think I lean right because I'm a 49 year old straight white male Protestant living in the South.

poll is garbage. said +48 D for me, just like OP.

In real life, I vote single issue and can be radical environmentalist in one context, libertarian in another, trad-con in another.

Or as ― Kurt Vonnegut said:
"Thanks to the convenience of Television, you can only be one of two kinds of human beings, either a liberal or a conservative.”

The quiz is NOT an assessment of any given individual's opinions. It's a prediction of likely voting-behavior based on traits of groups of which one is a member.

For example, if the subject-matter were, "How likely are you to bother to vote", the main question would be, "how old are you?" If you're young, the prediction would be, that you'd not vote. If you're over 65, the prediction would be, that you're overwhelmingly likely to vote. It would take no account of the young-person who's politically active, or the older person who's apathetic.
