2012 Presidential Candidates



Which of the Presidential candidates shares your views? To help you learn more about the various candidates, and their views on the issues, we are providing you with links to their campaign sites. To be impartial, they are listed alphabetically -- Democrats and then Republicans.

To find out which candidate's views are closest to your own, take the survey at the Minnesota Public Radio site. You may be surprised at the results!

You can also view each Presidential candidate's positions on the major issues. Issues covered in the survey include: abortion, federal debt, the economy, federal education policy, federal energy policy, the environment, federal health care, same-sex marriage, immigration, Social Security, taxes, how to fight terrorism, and how the US should handle the current wars.



Selection of a new Commander in Chief is always important to military families, as the personality and party occupying the White House has a direct impact on their lives for the next four to eight years.

So take the survey, then come back and let us know which candidate's views align more closely with your own, and why.
