How It Works

We have documented 7 Republican and Democratic presidential candidates on a broad range of issues that matter the most to you.

We ask you how you feel on those issues, compare them to the candidates, then rank them for you according to the best match.

 
Candidate Scores

Step 1 calculates the base score for each candidate:

Your Answer Was Points Given
Exact match to candidate's answer 150 points
One level away from candidate's answer 75 points
"No opinion" 0  points

Note: "One level away" means, for example, he "supports" abortion rights and you "strongly support" abortion rights or visa versa.
 

Step 2 multiplies the base scores above for any group of questions to which you gave an importance level:

Importance You Gave Base Score 
X  
Extremely Important 175%
Very Important 150%
Somewhat Important 125%
Slightly Important 110%
Not Indicated 100%
(No multiplier)

That's It!

The scores are that simple.  Of course, we hope you will dig into the issues and candidates further by exploring the details of their positions, their character, leadership abilities and all the other important aspects in deciding who to vote for.  VoteMatch is just the start and is only issues-based.
