    That will likely be biased and inaccurate
    How can it be inaccurate when data is taken directly from party members and how can it be bias for the same reason?

    The positions can be inaccraute because the positions of members is not the same as that of the party, and it can be biased because, frankly, your analyses when there is any subjectivity to it tend to be frankly awful.

    The questions, they are often "Yes" or "no", and the options are too limited for an accurate conclusion.

    No, but if the majority of the party supports a position then it is the position of the party...
    And this is purely objective... It's just maths, 1 & 0....

    The trade off is between simplicity and accuracy. We could have really detailed and accurate answers to everything but then it becomes obvious to who said what due to use of buzz words and too long to read.

    That's not how party policy works though...

    And just yes no really does not help the accuracy. I guess you'll publish your definitions for the party and not one party will agree with what you say, they're going to be so accurate.

    If the majority of a party thinks something and the policy is different then, at least in the MHoC, something is wrong. Maybe the Tories do things differently but every other party works on a basis of policy by the majority....

    We will see won't we?

    Economic Left/Right: -6.0
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.1

    You are Social Democrat. 15 percent of the test participators are in the same category and 72 percent are more extremist than you.

    Should anyone wonder I've moved slightly right (like 1 point) and authoritarian (3 points up) since my last PC in October...
