The first is “the Progressive quiz” sponsored by The Center for American Progress. It argues that the country is increasingly getting more progressive, a point with which I totally agree. It states that the average American scores about 209.5 on a progressive scale which tops out at 400. Jay reports that he scored an “extremely progressive” 342 while Capper tells me that he scored 340. I didn’t realize that I was so “right wing” as I came in at 234!
In the same blog posting, Jay also posts his “Political Compass” placement. Again, mine is just a hair more “Authoritarian” and just a touch more to the “Right.” I hope that my comrades on the left don’t start taking me off of their blog rolls for this showing!
