    I DEMAND A RECOUNT!!!

    Libertarians
    9% of the public

    What They Believe
    Economically very conservative but moderate to liberal on social issues I'm Constitutional on all social issues
    Highly critical of government
    Strongly pro-business
    Accepting of homosexuality
    Less religious than the average American
    Moderate views about immigrants compared to other GOP-oriented groups Here's some bullshit. This fucked test is considering illegal immagration to be the same as immagration.

    Strong Republican-orientation, though a majority identify as independents
    Affluent: 39% have incomes of $75,000 or more
    Two-thirds are male
    85% are non-Hispanic whites Can't I just be white. Why the fuck do I have to be non-hispanic? That's some racist bullshit.
    About seven-in-ten (71%) have attended college
    About half as likely as the two strongest GOP groups to attend church weekly Not even on C or E.
    56% use social networking sites
    36% trade stocks


    What a joke the Pew has become.

    This test is interesting, but It seems to be desgined to draw out extremes on every position. I agree with two thumbs that is puts illegal and legal immigrants on the same page. I got something called "Post Modern" for some reason.

    Most of these tests go with a 1-5 scale for the questions, instead of having to choose one extreme or another.

    My best example is the environmental and regulation questions. I do see the need for regulations in both business and industry, however I am a fan of regulation by engineer/scientist, not regulation by lawyer.
