Do you always know exactly where you stand on political issues and which political leaders most closely agree with your views? If you are like me, you do not have the time to do all the research required to completely understand all of the issues and all of the leaders and candidates.
Fortunately there are some organization out there who do have the time. Here are three:

(I have taken this quiz several times. I think that one problem with these types of quizzes is that everyone has a different understanding of the definition of the same topic. Many people are agree on the same things but do not even realize it because they are each saying it a different way. Here are the details of my results.)
Here are 4 candidates which Glass Booth matched me with:
- Ron Paul 83% similarity
- Duncan Hunter 70% similarity
- Fred Thompson 69% similarity
- Mike Huckabee 66% similarity
Here are 4 candidates which VA Joe matched me with:
- Mike Huckabee 84.62%
- Mitt Romney – 84.62%
- Fred Thompson – 84.62%
- Tom Tancredo – 80.77%
Apparently I am a Mike Huckabee fan, at least when it comes to political polarization. Although, I have not been impressed with him as an individual much yet.
Here is one to help you keep track of what is going on in our Congress:

I have added all of these to my “Political Links” on the main page of my blog for your easy reference.
If you know of any other good (concise and hopefully unbiased) sites, please let me know about them.
