Political Typology Quiz

The quiz which was previously the subject of many threads here, has been updated: http://www.people-press.org/quiz/political-typology/

Along with a study as well: http://www.people-press.org/2017/10/24/political-typology-reveals-deep-fissures-on-the-right-and-left/

I am an "Opportunity Democrat" apparently.

Democratic-leaning and financially comfortable, Opportunity Democrats have liberal attitudes on most issues including the environment, immigration and homosexuality. They stand out from other Democratic groups in their strong belief that hard work is enough for most people to get ahead and for being somewhat less likely to see structural barriers facing blacks and women. They are supportive of U.S. engagement abroad and involvement in global markets.

.....what the shit?
Yeah this 'quiz' is a dud.

Got "disaffected Democrat"

This majority-minority group mostly identifies as Democratic or leans toward the Democratic Party. Disaffected Democrats strongly believe the economic system unfairly favors powerful interests and that business corporations make too much profit. Relatively few believe their family has achieved the American Dream, and 24% believe it is out of reach for their family. Most say the government should do more to help the needy and that poor people have hard lives because government benefits do not go far enough to help them live decently. In contrast to other Democratic-oriented groups, a majority (63%) characterizes government as “almost always wasteful and inefficient.”

Solid Liberal

Highly educated and politically engaged, Solid Liberals hold consistently liberal values. They back a robust role for government and are strong advocates of the social safety net. Large majorities view the current economic system as unfair and see economic inequality as a major problem. They take broadly positive views of immigrants, and fully 99% think being open to people from around the world is an essential part of the nation’s identity. Most say more needs to be done to address both racial discrimination and obstacles to women’s achievement. They support same-sex marriage and believe homosexuality should be accepted by society. Solid Liberals are the most Democratic of all typology groups: nearly two-thirds (64%) identify as Democrats, another 35% lean toward the Democratic Party.

"Country-first conservative"

This largely Republican group is highly critical of immigration and U.S. global involvement. Country First Conservatives are most likely to describe immigrants as a burden on the country and to say that too much openness threatens American identity. More than any other group, they say that America should act in its own interest even when its foreign allies disagree. Like Core Conservatives, they prefer a smaller government with fewer services, and most think that government is wasteful and inefficient. Country First Conservatives are conservative on social issues and are the only typology group in which a majority says homosexuality should be discouraged by society.

I got Opportunity Democrat, which is a bit ironic because within my RL social network I'm perceived as being more supportive of 3rd wave feminism, BLM, and other "identity politics" movements than is prudent. Previous poll results

"Democratic-leaning and financially comfortable, Opportunity Democrats have liberal attitudes on most issues including the environment, immigration and homosexuality. They stand out from other Democratic groups in their strong belief that hard work is enough for most people to get ahead and for being somewhat less likely to see structural barriers facing blacks and women.

Apparently I best fit 'Market Skeptic Republicans'.

Critical of many major institutions and government, Market Skeptic Republicans mostly identify with, or lean toward, the GOP. They stand out from other Republican-oriented groups in their negative views of the economic system: An overwhelming majority say it “unfairly favors powerful interests.” Most also say businesses make too much profit, and they are the most likely Republican-leaning group to want to raise taxes on corporations (55%). They are similar to other GOP-leaning groups in their skepticism about the social safety net.

I currently live in a one a one party county of a a one party state of the same party. In order to get anything political done one must vote GOP or Republican whether one identifies with it or not. When I lived in a county where that was reversed, one had to work within and vote Democrat to get anything done (at the local and County level.) Where I currently live (Idaho) I am considered a "Core Conservative." Had I taken this test when living in Illinois I would be a "Enterprising New Dealer."

This test does not correlate well. I do not get along with "Core Conservatives." as they see me as too radical. I do not play well with those who think that one can pursue happiness (earn a decent livelihood) under arbitrary New Deal constrictions.

It seems this test fails to correctly discern a deep divide between those who are and support the Antidisestablishmentarians and those (many of both parties) desire to rid this country of the harm done by entrenched politics. The other trans-partisan divide it fails to distinguish are those who are believe in free enterprise and open markets but despise corporatism and current coercion of personal enterprise and domestic (as home/cottage) industry into corporate interests or face fines and criminal liability under colour of authority. I would be very interested in taking a test by one of these major polling companies that does so.
