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