Pew Research Political Typology.Watch
Are you a Steadfast Conservative? A Solid Liberal? Or somewhere in between? Take our quiz to find out which one of our Political Typology groups is your best match compared with a national survey of over 10,000 U.S. adults conducted by the Pew Research Center.
I got Next Generation Left.
Generally young, well-educated and financially comfortable, the Next Generation Left have very liberal attitudes on many issues, including homosexuality, abortion, the environment and foreign policy. While overall supportive of an activist government, most are wary of expanding the social safety net. Most also have relatively positive views of Wall Street’s impact on the economy. While most affiliate with the Democratic Party or lean Democratic, few consider themselves strong Democrats. Compare groups on key issues.
That's sort of a good summary of me, after all I am some sort of Keynesian these days...
I'm supportive of business but I would't agree that government is always wasteful. Government does a lot of good work and there are certain things the private sector just won't ever do. Still I do agree with the latter part more. Doesn't fit that well with the political views I have in my sig from another test though. (Which I've just realized is no longer there..)

Well there is always compromise when you have people differentiated into 8 groups. I know a Think Tank, Populus (see here) tried to do what the Pew Research did here with titles like Cosmopolitan Critic, Comfortable Nostalgia, et al. All these groups help research and predicting how people will be voting during elections, and get an idea of the make-up of a constituency. However these groups Populus devised were ambiguous and did cater to people's social and economic aspects. Apparently in the 2004 election, Karl Rove had devised 90+ voter blocs in the US, which of course was precise but far too convoluted.
It really is amazing the lengths parties go to in elections to target themselves at various voters.
