HOW DO YOUR

POLITICAL VIEWS

COMPARE?

Several decades of research indicate most people do not know how their political views compare to those of others. We tend to exaggerate the extremity of views of people from the other party and minimize the extremity of our own views (or those within our party).

Choose the statement that comes closer to your own views (even if neither is exactly right) to see how your political views compare to the average Democrat and the Average Republican. Then, click "See My Results" to see how your views compare.

F.A.Q.s

This quiz (and the results) are developed from an ideology measurement tool that has been administered in more than sixteen nationally representative samples by the Pew Foundation. Each of the questions above has a liberal slant and a conservative slant. By tracking patterns in which statement is closer to your own views, we assign you an overall score that ranges from very liberal to very conservative.
