Who Are You?

Actually, the title of this post should more accurately be “What Are You?”, but I couldn’t resist using the title of one of my favorite songs from The Who.

Anyway – short post, but I wanted to put up a link to an interesting site maintained by the Pew Research Center for the People & The Press – The Political Typology. Recognizing that it is overly simplistic to divide the U.S. into “red” and “blue” states, as each party is comprised of voters of varying shades, it has identifed 9 different “Typology Groups”:

Enterprisers
Social Conservatives
Pro-Government Conservatives
Upbeats
Disaffecteds
Conservative Democrats
Disadvantaged Democrats
Liberals
Bystanders

The site features a neat little questionnaire that you can complete and see which Typology Group you fit into. Depending on how I answer a couple of questions, I flip between “Conservative Democrat” and “Liberal”. Interesting stuff.
