92% with Barack Obama, 3% with Mitt Romney. 77% with Wisconsin voters and 77% with American voters.

I wondered which version of Mitt Romney they were using.

Looks like if you post your final url it will give your results.

pj's results

If I agree with Obama 88% of the time, Wisconsin voters 91% of the time, American voters 91% of the time and Mitt Romney 6% of the time, how is this even a race?

I would like to know how "American voters" compare with Mitt Romney, in the terms of the poll.

Stein 82%
Obama 81%
Alexander 74%
Paul 13%
Romney 7%
Wisconsin voters 55%
American voters 56%

I note that the two Voters comparisons are on social issues. Also that the comparisons are not just in terms of raw position but also commitment (least important to most important). And make sure you click the button on each question to reveal the other stances--that could change your numbers. I probably would have had Alexander and Obama reversed if I had paid more attention to that.

83% Ron Paul
78% Gary Johnson
76% Jill Stein
68% Barack Obama
63% Mitt Romney

83% Wisconsin Voters
83% American Voters


Hmmm. I certainly never would have guessed this. I think there are too few questions to really accurately measure something like this. I am voting for Stein, incidentally.

Obama 88%
Stein 87%
Alexander 73%
Paul 25%
Romney 15%

Science, immigration, foreign policy, I agree with Obama, but it came up 34% Libertarian. I am somewhat surprised by this, as I feel like I have been shaking my head over the direction of the last four years (though not so much the last six months or so) - I feel like I'm more a social liberal and fiscal conservative...this was really interesting!

The Wisconsin voters and American voters percents confuse me. I'm not sure how to interpret them based on what people have been posting here.
