Within the political group or party you are affiliated with, or identify with most, are you rather more to the left or the right of that group? Only relative to that group, not generally left or right.

I'm left enough in the GOP, I'm starting to doubt that I'm really a Republican.

I'm a purely constitutional conservative. I don't even identify as a republican because if Donald Trump is a republican, I don't want to be one.

Left right wing if that makes sense. I agree with pretty much everything the Republicans say but I don't agree with their very Christian views.

Which would make you more of a libertarian right?

These results shouldn't be as surprising as they are to me. So most democrats and republicans self identify as extremists. That explains a lot.

Neither. More pro-Liberty than most, and can't be defined in terms of where French legislators once sat.

I generally just identify as liberal and not as a member of any party, but I am further left than the Green and Democratic parties.

I'm pretty far left even by Labour Party standards

I identify as an independent but I tend to lean democratic, so left. That being said, I prioritize an official's personality and trustworthiness far more than their ideals, which is why I'm supporting Kasich in the primaries

Believe it or not I'm a moderate compared to most Nationalists I talk to.

The libertarian party in the us is more right wing, but I am more of a centrist libertarian

As a socialist, I'm to the left of my group. As an anarchist, I'm to the left. As a communist, I might say I'm to the right because I still believe in a lot of personal property. I believe everyone should have access to the same stuff, just not the same stuff. I'm undecided on communal child reading and communal meals. On the one hand, the only people cooking should be the ones who enjoy cooking. On the other hand, maybe people should be allowed to prepare their own food privately. Same logic for child rearing.

Left on most, middle to right on a fair bit though.

You can be left or right leaning.

I don't really consider independents to a group though.

Independents still can be leaning one way or the other. It's probably rare to be dead center all the way.

That's tough for me since I'm all over the spectrum, depending on topic, so I simply took the result from a political test that pegged me slightly left leaning Libertarian. So it's "left" but far from socialist.
