    I guess by most conventional definitions I'm a liberal through and through, but I don't usually refer to myself as such.

    By UK standards, I'm liberal. By US standards, I'm probably a communist.

    I'm not going to vote because I'm an anarchist and I'm not sure that falls on the scale. If I had to go democratically, I'd say I'm a libertarian which is basically in the middle.

    My political stances on popular topics-
    pro-LGBT (duh)
    Pro-choice
    Pro-marijuana legalization
    Pro-burning Donald Trump
    Pro-Gun Control
    #FeelTheBern

    ...Those are the basics I suppose.

    I guess 4. I'm not American, but I was curious, so I took the "isidewith" test; it says I side 85% with Bernie Sanders, and 81% with Hillary Clinton.

    By the standards of modern British politics I would be considered left of centre - socialist (2-3 on the poll). Rewind 30 - 40 years and my views would be considered more mainstream, or even slightly conservative. The left/right dynamic has changed considerably in this country since the late 1970's and not really for the better.

    I am repulsed by conservatism. I am slightly less repulsed by liberalism. I'm not on this scale. In America you're either liberal or conservative. I'm neither. I am much farther left than the Democratic Party or Bernie Sanders. I have strong socialist, environmentalist and anarchist leanings, but still consider myself inddpendent with pronounced left and far-left leanings.

    I voted for 3. I am socially liberal but in other areas, I could go either way.

    I put myself at 2. I'm socially and economically liberal. I have to laugh when people say conservatives are anti spending, both parties spend insane amounts of money. You just have to decide if you want it spent towards a thriving economy or a thriving military

    Same here.

    In US politics I would be considered a centrist. In Brazil politics I'm on the right.

    I can't really pick an answer. It's not that I don't care, I do very much, just none of them can be trusted

    In this poll I voted 1, but that doesn't really cover it. In fact, I think most of the US would probably think I'm insane if I say what I believe in.

    I'm fairly pretty damn left wing. Which isn't that uncommon in Europe.

    I voted 4. I'm more left than right. Basically a moderate democrat.

    I'm independent of the binary political system and decide what I approve of and disapprove of on my own.

    I'm mostly progressive, however not wildly so. Also, I've found myself agreeing with things that people may consider conservative.

    Now, this is where I get confused. In the UK I am very conservative, i.e. I vote for the conservative party and think they will do this country good. The conservatives legalised same sex marriage, however I think in 'Murcia conservative means bible thumping homophobes? I'm not too sure.

    In the sense of the actual meaning of the word I'm as liberal as they come. Anyone should be free to do whatever they want as long as they don't harm other people.
