, Jill Stein, and Gary Johnson

There’s an interesting new online quiz website called that tells you which presidential candidate has positions most similar to your own. My results below the fold:

Well, I guess that settles which third-party candidate I’m voting for, given that I’ve resolved not to vote for Obama. Sort of–part of me figures if I’m going to do a third-party protest vote, it should be for the same third-party candidate everyone else is voting for, and Gary Johnson isn’t that far down on my match percentage (and he might be higher up if the damn website had had better questions on foreign policy and executive power).

In any case, I find it interesting that the difference in my percentages for Jill Stein (Green Party) and Gary Johnson (Libertarian Party) is greater than the difference in my percentages for Gary Johnson and Mitt Romney. Are Johnson and Romney that far apart, or is that a quirk of what issues I told the website were important to me?
