I’m still in the middle!

I haven’t taken one of these politica compass tests for a while, so I thought I’d take a stab at this one and see if I’m still right in the middle of the political spectrum.

You are a

Social Moderate
(55% permissive)

and an…

Economic Moderate
(50% permissive)

You are best described as a:

Centrist

Yeah, pretty much.

Woo me, oh politicians! I’m your classic swing voter: and like the song says, it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing.

But, all those friends of mine who are left-wing (and there are a lot)? You’re not winning any points with me by calling all my more conservative friends and family (and there are a lot of them, too) stupid mouth-breathing hicks, incipient fascists, or whatever else is the insult du jour. And I hear a LOT more insults and vile calumnies flowing from that side of the political spectrum than I do from the other.

You catch more flies with honey than vinegar, you know.

    I prefer to think of myself as adroit.
