Where do you fit politically? Take the test

By Leroy Cleveland - August 8, 2022

Pew Research Center has created a quiz they insist will tell you where you fall in their nine political spectrum typology groups. Your results will be compared with a nationally representative survey of more than 10,000 U.S. adults.

The aforementioned groups are as follows:

If you find some of the questions difficult to answer or encounter instances where none of the options are reflective of your response, pick the answer that comes closest to your view, even if it isn’t exactly right.

Unlike the typical political affiliation tests that focus on raw ideology from a political science perspective, this 16-question quiz is geared toward mainstream issues and covers topics such as immigration, culture, government’s proper role in society, trade, political correctness, race, civil rights, and privilege.

When completed, you’ll be given an overall rating as well as individual rankings on your responses to each question.

Not Perfect
Overall, it’s a nice quiz but I would have asked a question or two about the role of states’ rights versus federal policies, gun laws, the environment, and abortion.

When finished, please come back and share your thoughts about the quiz below.
