Project Vote Smart's Vote Easy

Project Vote Smart continues to endear itself to me. Their latest innovation is Vote Easy, which allows a voter to answer some questions in order to see which federal candidates best match her or his views.  I took the presidential election quiz and, not surprisingly, Gary Johnson came the closest to my views with a 67% match.  Barack Obama had the least bond to me with 45%, though Mitt Romney was close to him with only a 47% match to my views.

The tool isn't perfect (the quiz only focuses on a few major issues), but it's fairly nifty.  Think of it as Internet dating for politicians, a voter's version of Match.Com or whatnot!
