Center For American Progress Political Quiz: How Conservative or Progressive Are You?

Political Barometer: How Conservative or Progressive Are You?


With over two-thirds of Americans favoring progressive ideals, America seems to be getting bluer by the year. We are center-left on government, the economy, and domestic politics, but a little less so on cultural and social issues, according to a 2009 survey.

Because there's nary a better way to define yourself than with a quiz, the Center For American Progress has 40 questions to measure how conservative or progressive you are. Zero is the most conservative, and the scale goes on up to 400, the most progressive.

America's average? 209.5. Now go take it and tell us where you land.
