Political Typology: Post-Modern
 According to the Pew Research Center Political Typology Quiz, I’m a ....



What They Believe
  • Generally supportive of government, though more conservative on race policies and the safety net
  • Strongly supportive of regulation and environmental protection
  • Most (56%) say Wall Street helps the economy more than it hurts
  • Very liberal on social issues, including same-sex marriage
  • One of the least religious groups: nearly a third are unaffiliated with any religious tradition
  • Favor the use of diplomacy rather than force
Who They Are
  • The youngest of the typology groups: 32% under age 30
  • A majority are non-Hispanic white and have at least some college experience
  • Half live in either the Northeast or the West
  • A majority (58%) live in the suburbs
  • 63% use social networking
  • One-in-five regularly listen to NPR; 14% regularly watch The Daily Show.
How completely and utterly....unsurprising! Though I've never heard the term "post-modern" applied to political typology before.

On a completely different note, IB exams are ongoing, and for nerdatron examophobes like me that is NOT GOOD NEWS. Especially since I have Chem on Monday and maybe 60 hours of exam material to go through. I had the English Paper 1, and Math Paper 1 & 2 this week, so...three down, eleven to go!

That Politics quiz is really interesting and I enthusiastically slow-mo ran over the internet, as only a Politics student can, to take it... then realised it's only really applicable to those in the US. I'm going to try and hunt down one for British politics.

Good luck on your exams!

Bahaha, I appreciate that, I really do! As a future Politics minor, I can totally see myself doing that. Unfortunately, I know next to nothing about British politics, but maybe this quiz is more inclusive? I just found it. :]

Politics FTW.

And thanks for that! I've taken a Political Compass test before. My results were pretty much the same - lefty, moderate social libertarian - but it was really cool to see how I ranked against other takers. And the demographic comparison is brilliant too.


And you're very welcome! I too have ended up center-left for every quiz I've taken, which I suppose shouldn't be much of a surprise.

It was, wasn't it? I'm a sucker for stats/charts/tables. [/nerd]
