Some may have a pretty good idea of who they plan to vote for in the upcoming Presidential election, but in case they're not sure, a website may have the answer.
With 26 questions and measuring how important each question is to you, selectsmart.com produces who they say your Presidential vote should be.
"If somebody's interested enough to do this but doesn't know anything about the candidates, it might give them a list of people to look into more," said survey participant Janet Hamilton.
The people we asked to take the survey say that they weren't surprised by the results, but still think it's a good way to test your beliefs.
"I think it's a good, it's a good test. It's a good measure of what your actual beliefs are, so I think the rubrics they picked were very good," said survey participant Bradley Justus.
While the website may be fun, some political experts warn that a lot more goes into choosing who you decide to vote for President.
"It's a simplistic process. I'm delighted it's there. A lot of people enjoy taking it, but people should not take it too seriously," said UVa political professor Larry Sabato.
Sabato also says that a website cannot determine a person's character.
"Is it a tool? Sure, but like any tool it can be misused," said Sabato.
