poll on your political ideology [View all]

Last edited Sun Mar 23, 2014, 03:23 PM - Edit history (2)

Simply curious, that's all. One of these gets done once a year or so, IIRC.

I'm not a political scientist, so I'm sure many will be choosing the "Other" option to explain. Thanks for your patience.

ETA: I did not include Moderate for innocent reasons. If Moderate is regarded by political scientists as a political ideology, then next time I shall include it. No agenda implied in my poll. YES, middle ground is possible.

ETA2: I erred putting capitalist as a political ideology. It seems to be considered an economic ideology, so, my error.
