wasn't too surprised except by Paul being that high. If you read through the comparisons with a candidates answers though, it is interesting to see what they consider agreeing or similar answers and what they consider disagreeing answers.
case in point, I wouldn't consider this a point of agreement
Do you support affirmative action programs?
Barack Obama: Yes
Your similar answer: No, but we should offer social programs to address poverty regardless of race or ethnicity
or if it is a point of agreement then shouldn't this be:
Should the U.S. maintain a presence at the United Nations?
Mitt Romney: Yes, but scale back our current involvement
I assume that your level of importance effects the connection somehow, but both of these were rated higher in importance for me.
