Bit of fun really, spotted this shared elsewhere and figured people would enjoy yet another political quiz to do. This one is based on populism, and is part of the Guardian's series on populism: https://www.theguardian.com/world/ng...-are-you-quiz?

Feel free to disregard your result entirely, or commit to it 100%.

On the topic, what is your opinion on populism and to you find yourself subscribing more to the ideologies of said 'populists', or do you tend to oppose their views?

Populist Left though just barely.
However I disagree with this result but its an online quiz so I dont mind all that much.
What I do dislike is being anywhere near the same box as self proclaimed socialists. I tend to be more towards the center but hey this is just for fun. So thanks for the post OP.

Ideologically do you oppose it? And no problem, still an interesting topic to think about and discuss (populism that is) even if it's in a more off beat fashion

I answered as a Hindu Nationalist akin to Modi and I was given that I was left-wing...

I dont necessary ideologically oppose populism. However I do recognise it can be a dangerous thing since the popular opinion isn't necessarily the best for the country or it's people. On the flip side politicians should actively attempt to be more popular with their constituants and keep up with popular issues even if they are socially more awkward to speak about. Truth be told populism is really only as dangerous as the politicians utilising it so in some cases I do indeed oppose it but on others I am neutral or support it.

I think this is a problem with western democracy. Europe historically was either about monarchy vs people, or was split into ethnolingustic nations akin to France, but this doesn't work for multiethnic societies.

Quite bizarre that they consider Obama and Macron to be more left wing than Morales.

Liberals gonna liberal

Also Barrack Obama used populism to get elected. He was really very good at it. A technocrat (a bad one) in populist clothing.

You're most similar to:Pablo IglesiasLeader of Podemos, a leftwing Spanish partyIglesias is a founder member of the anti-corruption, anti-austerity Podemos party, which props up the Spanish socialist minority government.You're least similar toonald TrumpUS presidentDonald Trump is the president of the US. He has repeatedly failed to condemn radical rightwing activists, and for a time employed Steve Bannon on his presidential team.
