PEW Quiz results…

The quiz resulted in me being an opportunity democrat (first number in each category), compared to the second number (general public %).

Democratic-leaning and financially comfortable, Opportunity Democrats have liberal attitudes on most issues including the environment, immigration and homosexuality. They stand out from other Democratic groups in their strong belief that hard work is enough for most people to get ahead and for being somewhat less likely to see structural barriers facing black people and women. They are supportive of U.S. engagement abroad and involvement in global markets.
