Your Politics Are Showing: Pew Study Sorts Americans Into 8 Groups (Lindsey Cook July 10, 2014, CS Monitor)
The Pew Research Center has released its sixth Political Typology Survey, which aims to categorize the political landscape beyond red and blue.To create the study, Pew surveyed more than 10,000 adults in the United States. Pew used cluster analysis to sort people into groups based on answers to questions about politics, lifestyle and values. Since the groups don't rely on simple party lines, Pew was able to tease out the differences between groups other than those already committed to the Republican or Democratic Party. Although many think of the political center as one homogeneous group that lands between Democratic and Republican views on key issues, the survey found the center consists of several groups that don't agree with either party and don't agree with each other.Take the quiz to find out which group you fit with.
