Election day is now less than a month away. The debates have started, there are commercials, and let's not forget the endless bloviating on television and radio.
But the question is: Do we really know what candidate best matches our positions?
A website launched earlier this year that claims their tool can match candidates to voters, has quickly been gaining popularity through social media channels. In fact, according to iSideWith.com's homepage, nearly four 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 Connecticut, their positions matched President Barack Obama's 54 percent of the time — more than any other candidate. Surprisingly, Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson is the second highest match at 47 percent. Green Party candidate Jill Stein is 45 percent outpacing even Mitt Romney who's matched only 33 percent of the Connecticut 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?
