In January, we published a quiz on TIME.com (time.com/mypolitics) that guessed people’s politics by asking how much they agreed or disagreed with statements like “I prefer cats to dogs.” Our initial prediction was based on previous studies about how personality traits correlate with politics. Now we’ve shown it works on a much larger scale: more than 220,000 of the people who took the quiz volunteered their real political preferences. Here, based on that data, a look at how strongly certain attitudes can indicate how you’ll vote.
