Political compass


..i didn't know that political leanings can be represented on to a 2-dimension graph. This is what Political compass does, based on a number of simple questions. Well, I tried, and it turned out that I'm pretty far from the positions of most of the possible candidates for US elections. And I also found it interesting that politicians are not much sparse, but tend to gather on a diagonal line: do we want to have a look at the first eigenvector for this?
