Find Out Which 2020 Democratic Nominee You Most Agree With With This Quiz
In light of the recent news of former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick joining the 2020 presidential race – and the very real possibility of running for the election of Michael Bloomberg – keeping track of all 18 nominee politicians is getting harder every day. (We’ve already tried it. There are several of our guides here on where candidates stand on major issues.)
Fortunately, if you still don’t know what candidates are arguing about during televised debates, the Washington Post recently polled the majority of Democratic candidates in the 2020 race on seven major policy areas. These areas include their proposals for reforming education, immigration, health care, foreign policy and climate change – issues that candidates do not always consider in brief moments when candidates are at the center of debate.
Best of all, WaPo has designed a simple 10-question quiz so you can better understand which candidate you agree with most politically (and without having to sift through all the poll results).
As you will see, each question has two or three possible answers. Once you choose an answer, you will immediately see results for candidates who also support this view, and a recent history of the growing importance of this particular policy (including questions about whether you support the abolition of private health insurance or the electoral college). At the bottom of the quiz, a summary of your results is summarized and ultimately it is figured out which candidate you share the most views with.
These questions are not exhaustive, but they do address several differences between candidates that may affect your thinking as we get closer to 2020. (Given the latest news about Patrick’s late entry, he is excluded from this quiz, as is Bloomberg. Thankfully, we have already compiled a few of our positions on core issues.)
Do not be surprised at certain questions and their results; Supporting the cancellation of private health insurance will obviously put you in the Sanders and Warren camp. But other issues, such as the acceptable amount of paid family leave, turn out to be much more controversial.
