Word For It. . .

Matrix/’Blind’ Quiz on Candidates

Posted by wordforit on January 25, 2008

The content of each cell is designed to provide users, regardless of their religious or political affiliation, a thorough overview of a given candidate’s position. Also offers a “Comparison Mode”.  (all links-new windows)

Matrix

________________________________________

Take the ‘Blind Quiz’ ( answer questions, then see who answered the same way) , or click on Election Issues to read statements made by candidates.

Vote by Issue

________________________________________

On the Issues is favored because, although all are excellent resources I reference frequently, it covers more in-depth and a wider range of issues.

On the Issues

________________________________________

“The following is a general guideline to the candidates’ positions on some of the top issues. Some of the issues are more complex and usually require more than a ‘yes/no’ or ‘support/oppose’ position. Please visit the official campaign site of the candidate in question for more details about each issue. Also, feel free to leave a comment or email us at contact@2decide.com if you think we made an error or simply would like us to add another issue to the table. . .” http://www.2decide.com/table.htm  (5145 diggs)

    Thank you, Angie. Let’s PRAY THAT IT WILL BE USED!! My niece in Columbia, SC just told me she is sick of hearing the arguments there! (She didn’t say ‘debates’…;-)

    The Matrix originally came from PBS’ site and they have some great resources but I have begun to notice some bias creeping in their news reports, or maybe I didn’t catch it before (meaning the actual news hour, not the journalistic ones, which I think are going to have a natural tendency to the reporters’ views).

    On the Issues is great to find out the “minor” (how can they be “minor”) issues!!

    Glad to see you, as always!
