Full Version: How populist are you?

The Guardian have got this quiz on their website that compared how populist you are, and compares which populist, either on the left or right, that you are most similar to. I present it to you with the usual caveats about this sort of quizzes, that slightly differing responses could yield largely differing results, and don't decide your political persuasion from a ruddy quiz, it's just a bit of fun.

According to the quiz, I am just very slightly on the non-populist right, and I am most similar to Emanuel Macron. And now I want to burn this survey with fire.

Least similar to Bernie Sanders, which I can somewhat understand.

Same here. Given I think Obama is one of the greatest national leaders of my lifetime I'd say that was surprisingly accurate!
