If you are at all confused, like me, you may be one of the many undecided voters who may actually swing this election.
If, this week, you are still undecided, here is an idea you might like to try. Go to www.selectsmart.com/president/2008.html and take the 26 question survey.
It seems like a fairly unbiased survey, takes less than five minutes, and the outcome of your 26 inputs will be an ordered listing of all the 33 candidates that, at one time, had their names in the political hat. The results will show you how all the candidates stack up in comparison to your preferences.
Interestingly, my top match was 71 percent aligned with my personal views, and the bottom match was 25 percent aligned. Everything in the middle was actually quite entertaining.
Of course, only the few that are still in the running are the ones you will be most interested in seeing whether your views match up with theirs.
I like the survey, because it does not bias you by first revealing the particular stance that a candidate has on an issue. It only asks how important a given issue is to you.
So, even if you are not sure where the candidates stand on respective issues, you probably know where you stand. And that’s a good start before you go to the polls on Election Day. Your vote counts.
