Which Facebook "Like"s Show Your Political Affiliation?

This is all based on a study referenced in an article which can be found here: Facebook Says You're Smart If You Like... Basically, a computer program was designed that could predict people's characteristics based on their "like"s on Facebook. Among many other things, one of the characteristics the computer program was able to anticipate was political party affiliation.

Boxer but no Reagan? That is indeed pretty strange. :) Glad you liked the quiz. This one doesn't get much love.

The average score here is 10, much better than my other similar FB "like"s quizzes, so I think I'm just going to leave the hints as they are.

I guess people's political likes/dislikes are just more predictable than some other things...

I was surprised on the Democrat side at not seeing the Clintons, Jon Stewart, Rachel Maddow, Al Gore, Bill Maher, Oprah Winfrey, or Bill Moyers instead of Boxer, Weiner, or even the late Ted Kennedy.

Bill Clinton is fairly popular amongst Republicans, as far as Democratic presidents go. Hillary is not that popular even amongst Democrats. Jon Stewart is very popular across the political spectrum. Bill Maher also, albeit less so. Oprah definitely, much moreso. Maddow, Gore, and Moyers have their fans but not that many. Remember in order to be most indicative and thus show up on this list something would have to be very often liked by one side and not often liked by the other. I'm sure there are a lot more Republicans that like Oprah and Jon Stewart than there are those that like Ted Kennedy or Anthony Weiner.

Hey man, abortions are great. Once you've had one it's hard not to keep coming back for another and another and another. Don't knock it 'til you've tried it.

I wonder how much this has changed since 2013. I doubt McCain or Romney likes are still strongly indicative of being Republican- especially since both have opposed the president a number of times.. Beck and Palin aren't as prominent as they once were, either. Trump might show up in the left column, but then again a lot of people follow him just out of morbid curiosity or sheer horror.

On the Democrats side, I bet the White House has shifted columns since there is no longer a sitting Democratic president. Weiner has fallen out of favor. Kennedy and Boxer aren't really much on the radar anymore... maybe Hillary Clinton or Corey Booker would show up instead. Popular political issues have changed, as well. I don't think Bernie Sanders would make it because he is also popular amongst some segments of the Republican base. Not as much a polarizing figure as Clinton or Trump.
