Bayside Middle Political Spectrum Survey

The political spectrum is often thought of as a basic and flat line. The further left you are, then the more liberal you tend to be. The more right you are, then the more conservative you tend to be.

This quiz takes the complexity of many political issues and simplifies them into a basic "left" "right" system. We would like to note that this is not the best way to display all the complexities of modern American politics.
