Election Poll - Voting on the issues!
This poll is based on a blog entry on Anomalous Data (local mirror). The intent of this informal poll is to compare the candidates on their issues, and not on their character. This poll is not scientific in any way. I did my best to keep it as unbiased as possible, but it's hard when I'm only using verbiage from their official sites. All statements are totally random, and thus you may see the same statement twice. All statements are copied directly from the offical McCain and Obama websites. Yes I know some of the questions are vague, but so are the candidates, nothing I can do about that.

For those of you that are paranoid you can turn on cheat mode, to show the candidate when you vote. Alternately you can view the raw data this is pulled from. If you don't like the results simply take the poll again, you should get new questions. Maybe your results will be different the second time.

A secure border is an essential element of our homeland security and, as President, he will finish the job of securing our land borders, ports and airports.

On the topic of 'Environment'
Proposes A Cap-And-Trade System That Would Set Limits On Greenhouse Gas Emissions While Encouraging The Development Of Low-Cost Compliance Options.

On the topic of 'Health Care'
When families are informed about medical choices, they are more capable of making their own decisions and often decide against unnecessary options. Health Savings Accounts take an important step in the direction of putting families in charge of what they pay for.
Establish a National Health Insurance Exchange with a range of private insurance options as well as a new public plan based on benefits available to members of Congress that will allow individuals and small businesses to buy affordable health coverage.
