  • Staunch Conservative.
    I wonder if the "immigrant" questions were referring to illegals or just immigrants. I guess they were referring to those here legally. I wouldn't expect this poll to be PC. The answers would have been different had they said, illegal or undocumented.

  • staunch conservative. I don't know about 'staunch'. I didn't like some of the choices, but I am conservative.

    I was actually wondering the same thing. I think it categorized me okay for the most part, but I see a lot of gray areas on issues so having only two options for answers doesn't cover all of my views. I think it was accurate in general though.

    I also wondered about the immigrant questions and what they were including in that.

  • lol pam19 i did the same, the first was soo off it was funny, the second time they got me right.

    I do think solid liberal fits me overall (especially on social issues), but I would consider myself to be moderate on a few issues too, so maybe I sort of fit in with some of the post-modern descriptions as well.
