Undecided Voters: Try This Online Quiz To See Who You Should Support For President

It takes an in-depth look at your stance on a range of issues, then compares them to candidates' positions.


Are you still undecided on who to vote after Tuesday night's Town Hall-style Presidential debate? There is a tool that may help.

Pundits say very few of us are undecided when it comes to who we support for president. But do our own opinions on issues line up with our candidate's? 

A website launched earlier this year claims their tool can match candidates to voters and it's quickly gained popularity through social media channels. In fact, according to iSideWith.com's homepage, more than three million people have taken the free quiz to determine their ideal candidate since it launched in March.

The quiz covers everything from social issues to foreign policy and answers can be fine tuned; You can choose general or more detailed responses, and a scale allows you to set the level of importance for each issue. Your responses are then analyzed to determine your ideal candidate, complete with a breakdown of your response matches.

Among the people who took the quiz in Rhode Island, their positions matched President Barack Obama's 55 percent of the time — more than any other candidate.  Surprisingly, Green Party candidate Jill Stein was the second highest match at 48 percent, and Libertarian Gary Johnson is just a point behind, at a  46 percent match. Mitt Romney matched only 31 percent of the Rhode Island respondents.

Seems to be a pretty handy tool, but does it work? You tell us. Take the free quiz on iSideWith.com and let us know what you think. Is the candidate it matched with you the candidate you plan to vote for?
